(Hackensack, New Jersey; March 26, 2020) — The Northern New Jersey Community Foundation (NNJCF) is working with area nonprofit organizations serving vulnerable populations impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and launching the COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund. The public is invited to help by making a donation to the Fund that will provide support to small nonprofit organizations with limited budgets providing assistance on the frontlines in Bergen County, New Jersey.
In collaboration with its partners, grantees and community leaders, the NNJCF is gathering information about how municipalities and residents, especially low-income children, families, and seniors, in the county are being impacted by the pandemic. The Fund will support small local nonprofits encountering increased demand for services and supplies, while also confronting difficult financial choices about whom to serve and how. Nonprofits providing arts programs and services in the county to build community engagement in a time of isolation will also be supported.
“Bergen County residents face increased struggles because of reduced or lost income, food and housing insecurity, health expenses and childcare needs impacted by COVID-19. The public can make a difference at this critical time to help small nonprofit organizations respond and provide direct services to our neighbors in need by making a contribution of any size,” said Michael J. Shannon, President, Northern New Jersey Community Foundation.
