Our Collective Impact – COVID-19
California Community Foundation (CCF) launched the COVID-19 LA County Response Fund to address the immediate and emerging needs of our region’s most vulnerable residents—from hardship relief to long-term recovery. Since the start of this pandemic, CCF has awarded $11,922,500 to nonprofits across LA—from East LA to El Segundo, bringing the total number of grants awarded to 233. CCF continues to monitor the developments related to the rapidly changing COVID-19 pandemic while gathering input from community partners on the frontlines. This information will inform our next round of grants.
As donations are received, CCF makes grants on a rolling basis to address emerging needs.
CCF announced its first round of grantees on March 24th with grants totaling $1.7 million to address the immediate needs of the most vulnerable focused on youth, the homeless, immigrants, uninsured and under-insured.
We announced our second round of grantees on April 15, with grants totaling $1.8 million to support health clinics and hospitals throughout the County, and to fill gaps in the connections between clinics and homeless services providers.
On May 4, CCF announced the third and fourth rounds totaling $7.9 million to address food insecurity and to support health clinics that have the highest numbers of people experiencing homelessness and who are located either near a Disaster Resource Center hospital or quarantine site opened by the County.
Since the start of this pandemic, CCF has awarded $11,922,500 to nonprofits across LA—from East LA to El Segundo, bringing the total number of grants awarded to 233.
CCF is also proud to be partnering and leveraging its efforts with its donors who have collectively given $18.1 million dollars out of their donor advised fund to respond to COVID-19 related needs within Los Angeles, representing 87%, and the remaining throughout the nation and the world.
Determined through consultation with on-the-ground partners in affected areas, the current grants focus on efforts by trusted community partners providing services which target needs in education, health, housing and immigration.
