On June 29, the PATH Foundation announced a new Community Resilience grant cycle to support nonprofit organizations, with $1.5M in available funding. The grants were created in response to the difficulties many nonprofits are facing due to circumstances caused by the pandemic, according to a press release.
With applications opening on July 6 and closing July 31, the Community Resilience grant cycle is one of many strategies the PATH Foundation is enacting to assist during the pandemic.
Community Resilience grants are a one-time, competitive process for general operating funds, up to $75,000, intended to help strengthen nonprofits as they continue their work.
“The PATH Foundation is acutely aware of the many challenges that COVID-19 has added to the work of our nonprofit partners,” said PATH Foundation President and CEO Christy Connolly. “Many nonprofit organizations in our community have had to cancel fundraising events or have lost other streams of revenue as a direct result of the pandemic. These grants are intended to help bridge those gaps and ease the financial burden faced by eligible organizations.”
Organizations that are eligible for community resilience grants include: 501(c)3 and 501(c)6 nonprofit organizations and religious organizations -- if the religious organization’s request is for an established program that serves the larger community. Please contact PATH Foundation staff at firstname.lastname@example.org for information on eligibility or other questions.
“We are thankful for all that our nonprofit partners have done to support our community each day, especially throughout the pandemic,” said Connolly. “We are honored to continue to support our community in this way.”
