MONTGOMERY, NY (March 18, 2020) – The Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan (CFOS) is launching the Orange and Sullivan COVID-19 Response Fund to address immediate and longer-term needs of residents in Orange and Sullivan counties. This fund will distribute grants of up to $5 thousand each to established nonprofit organizations that provide front-line services to the counties’ most vulnerable populations – food for needy families and essentials, such as prescription drug deliveries to homebound senior citizens and people with compromised immune systems.
“The Community of Orange and Sullivan is committed to supporting area nonprofit organizations and residents in need during this time of heightened uncertainty,” said CFOS President and CEO Elizabeth Rowley. “We are honored to provide our generous community members with a way to help their neighbors through this health crisis.”
The Kaplan Family Private Foundations, Rowley Family Foundation, Frommer & Spagnoli Families, RJ Smith & Family, Dominic & Amy Cordisco, and Barbara Martinsons provided initial funding for the fund, contributing $185 thousand collectively so as not to delay response.
