ABOUT THE BREVARD RELIEF FUND – COVID-19

The Brevard Relief Fund – COVID-19 will receive donations and make emergency grants to nonprofit organizations that have deep roots and strong experience supporting impacted communities, particularly those that are disproportionately affected by this global pandemic and its economic consequences.


OUR PARTNERS

Philanthropy has an important role to play in supporting community readiness and response. We believe that the most effective way to ensure our strategic investments can do the most good is to coordinate with our philanthropic partners and to complement the local, state, and federal government response. Our response initiative partners include: Space Coast Health Foundation and United Way of Brevard. We have come together to identify the most urgent funding needs in Brevard and provide support for those most negatively affected by COVID-19.
