CCF’s Response to COVID-19
The well-being and safety of our extended family of donors, advisors, staff, board members, nonprofit partners and community members is our top priority. As our nation, state and county begin to emerge from the stay-at-home orders due to the coronavirus, we want to provide you with an update on the California Community Foundation’s response to this global pandemic impacting our communities.
COVID-19 LA County Response Fund: On March 13th, 2020, CCF launched the fund to address the immediate and long-term needs of our region’s most vulnerable residents. This fund supports community needs identified by our partners in health, housing, education and immigration, and will provide assistance to impacted individuals through our Pass It Along Fund.
CCF Business Continuity:
- Business Hours: CCF has maintained operations during normal business hours by working remotely throughout the stay-at-home orders. We continue to follow recommendations from public health officials to protect our staff, including staggered and remote work arrangements, that may impact modes of communication and response times.
- Event Postponement: CCF continues to postpone all upcoming events and convenings. When recommendations by health officials around gatherings are revised, we will provide updates on rescheduled activities.
- CCF Meetings & Convening Center Activities: Until further notice, our JPC Convening Center will continue to be closed. Please visit this page for the latest updates.
- Grantmaking Timing: Our current timing for grants is approximately 6-10 business days from receipt of recommendation. You may view your “Grants Paid” listing on DonorConnect to see when a check has been cut, and may expect that checks will be mailed within 2-3 business days of the date paid.
CCF is a community foundation and our community is Los Angeles County. During times of uncertainty, we embrace our leadership role to respond to the evolving needs of our diverse residents. We will continue to monitor updates from public health officials to determine the best course of action to support the most vulnerable populations across the County.
We are all members of the greater Los Angeles family, and our concern and compassion for each other will help us weather this crisis, together. For more information and ongoing updates about CCF’s work across the region, please contact your relationship manager or program officer/manager and visit this page for updates.
Thank you for being a valued partner of CCF.
