Coronavirus (COVID-19) Rapid Response Fund
for Local Nonprofits and Agencies

We are in this together

The 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. So far we have distributed over $1 million for coronavirus response.

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 1 percent service fee on donations to this fund to administer the effort.

Qualified 501(c)(3) nonprofits and agencies may apply for funding here:
