Portland, OR. Oregon Community Foundation (OCF) has created the Oregon Community Recovery Fund and is rapidly deploying resources to community-based organizations at the front lines of the coronavirus outbreak. As of April 3rd OCF has awarded $3.3M in grant funding to 111 Nonprofits. With input from a network of volunteers, community leaders and partners, OCF has provided funding and resources to nonprofits to help nonprofits like The Oregon Food Bank fill gaps in funding during the COVID-19 crisis, providing resources where and when they are critically needed, focusing most on Oregon’s most vulnerable populations.

The Oregon Community Recovery Fund  pledges to the following:

We will engage with others to fill gaps in funding not met by the public or private sector during the crisis, including:

  • Basic needs: Services and assistance that keeps people housed, fed, healthy, and safe.
  • Jobs and economy: Services that help create, and connect people to jobs.
  • Childcare: Strategies for creating, retaining and increasing childcare (including school-aged care), including but not limited to childcare for essential health workers.
  • Social and emotional needs: Services for mental health, child abuse, domestic violence, substance abuse and other social/emotional issues exacerbated by the crisis.
  • School closures: Strategies for addressing learning loss (distance learning, instructional supports, etc.), ancillary services provided by schools (health, mental health, nutrition), and post-secondary issues.
