NVCF's Rapid Response Fund is made possible because of our donors

NVCF is able to offer this grant program to our service area because of our generous donors. This fund was opened so foundations, businesses and individuals can make donations to help vulnerable members of our communities during this crisis.

Applications Closed

Thank you for your interest, however, we are not currently accepting applications for the COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund grant program. 

COVID-19 Employee Care Grant Program

The NVCF COVID-19 Employee Care Grant Program was for nonprofits that serve vulnerable populations and residential care facilities. Companies and organizations in Butte, Glenn, Tehama and Colusa counties applied for grants that reward employees and volunteers with self-care initiatives or gestures. With the coronavirus pandemic complicating an already difficult year, many of these workers think of themselves last. This grant helped employers do something for these front-line workers and volunteers.

Applications are currently closed. If you have questions regarding the grant application process or the guidelines, contact grants@nvcf.org.
