The Longwood Foundation has donated $1 million to the Delaware COVID-19 Strategic Response Fund at the Delaware Community Foundation.
Longwood President Thère du Pont said he anticipates making additional contributions to the fund as the community’s needs progress.
The COVID-19 Strategic Response Fund at the DCF will target evolving needs of Delaware communities most impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.
A process for nonprofits wishing to apply for grants will be announced soon.
The fund is part of the Delaware COVID-19 Emergency Response Initiative, a coordinated effort of leading nonprofit agencies to alleviate the impact of the crisis in Delaware.
In addition to the Delaware Community Foundation, the partnering agencies are Delaware Alliance for Nonprofit Advancement, Philanthropy Delaware and United Way of Delaware.
