Community Emergency Relief Fund

The Community Foundation has activated the Community Emergency Relief Fund (CERF) in response to the COVID-19 protective measures that are now in place in Southwest Colorado. These measures, such as closures, cancellations, self-quarantines and social distancing, are necessary to reduce the risk of COVID-19 exposure and transmission, and particularly to preserve and protect the capacity of our local healthcare facilities.

Donations are now being accepted to deploy funds to community-based organizations directly responding to the most vulnerable members of our community. These resources will be disbursed as needed and as available.

The first two rounds of CERF emergency granting has been completed, with $201,000 being disbursed to 32 organizations across five counties.
  
The next round of CERF funding is targeted for July, and is anticipated to be another $175,000. These grants will address financial stability and recovery for nonprofits.

Community stakeholders, including representatives from public health, local governments, school districts, businesses and nonprofits, will continue to prioritize available funds to meet immediate needs in our region, including public health needs and economic impacts.
