Brown County Community Foundation's Response to COVID-19

Thursday, March 26, 2020

For over 25 years, the Brown County Community Foundation has provided grant dollars to support vital efforts in our local community. From our earliest days, we have worked together with partners across the community to improve healthcare, to support education, and to advance quality of life efforts. We care deeply for the people of this county, just as those pioneers before us.

It is with this tradition in mind and a sense of responsibility to those who work on the ground every day providing vital – even life-saving – services that the BCCF has created the Brown County Rapid Response Fund. The BCCF pledges an initial $10,000 to the fund and challenges our community to match this amount through individual giving for a total goal of $20,000.

Donations to this fund will assist local social service agencies, healthcare organizations, food service organizations, and emergency responders to address needs of personal protective gear, equipment, or supplies; support for communications or public awareness campaigns; support to address workforce needs; and funding for other operational needs.
