North Valley Community Foundation has established the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Rapid Response Fund for Local Nonprofits and Agencies grant program to help local nonprofit organizations and government agencies on the front lines prepare, rapidly respond to and deploy resources for coronavirus response in Butte, Glenn, Tehama and Colusa counties.


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. NVCF collects a 5 percent service fee on donations to this fund to administer the effort.


Applications Closed

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