Given the current situation regarding the coronavirus (also known as COVID-19) and its impact on public health, the Douglas County Community Foundation (DCCF) has implemented the following measures, with the health and well-being of our staff, donors, grantees, community, and other partners in mind. As a community foundation, focusing on the Douglas County, Colorado area, we want to do everything possible to decrease the spread of this virus and support our community to the greatest extent possible. Our policies and decision-making are based on recommendations and guidance provided by our local Tri-County Health Department, who is monitoring public health information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.
DCCF will be working as diligently as ever, remotely, and meetings will be conducted via telephone and teleconference through at least June 5. We will not be hosting events or workshops during this time. At this time of uncertainty regarding the economy, events, and closures, we want to be available to our donors, grantees, local nonprofits, and community members and organizations.
Staff is available and happy to schedule time to discuss any concerns or uncertainties you may have. For current, local statistics and resources, go to DOUGLASCOVID19
In these unprecedented times, nonprofit organizations who serve your community become all the more critical in our lives. Rapid response funding is needed today to strengthen and stabilize all nonprofit community organizations responding to and impacted by COVID-19. Answering the call for a solution, the Douglas County Community Foundation has established the COVID-19 Recovery Fund, in support of the immediate and long-term needs of the most vulnerable among us during this crisis. Priority will be given to, but not limited to food banks, food delivery, health care, housing, mental health, workforce development centers and COVID-19 prevention communications. Priority will also be given in the most vulnerable populations in our community, including seniors, those with disabilities, immune-compromised populations and those living in poverty.
