AWS Foundation Awards $138,190 to Northeast Indiana COVID-19 Relief

Wednesday, April 15, 2020

AWS Foundation has awarded a total of $138,190 in COVID-19 related Emergency Funding Grants to 29 different nonprofit organizations in Northeast Indiana. Emergency grants are designed to support activities such as food distribution, virtual services, personal protective equipment (PPE) and other emergency expenses.

“Though our mission serves individuals with disabilities typically, this time is different,” says Patti Hays, CEO.  AWS Foundation opened their Emergency Funding Grant in the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic. “This grant opportunity funds up to $5,000 to support organizations with incremental expenses directly attributed to the pandemic.  In a time of great need, when we help in an inclusive community, we help those of all abilities.”

Nonprofit organizations located in Northeast Indiana can apply at AWSFoundation.org/covid-19/. Applications are reviewed daily. 

In addition to emergency grants, AWS Foundation has distributed 1,400 filtered PPE masks to direct disability service providers and plans to provide 80 gallons of hand sanitizer. These items will be used by nonprofit staff when working in direct contact with clients, families and the public
