Coronavirus Response Fund Aims To Ensure Resources For Idaho Nonprofits



As more and more businesses close or limit hours, the impact these decisions are having on low-wage and hourly workers in our community has the potential to be financially devastating. That’s why the Idaho Community Foundation, United Ways of Idaho and the Idaho Nonprofit Center are partnering together to create the COVID-19 Response Fund for Idaho. 

The charitable fund aims to provide philanthropic support to trusted organizations that provide support and services to low income, vulnerable people and families. 


Nora Carpenter is the executive director of the United Way Treasure Valley and joins Idaho Matters to talk more about this.

As COVID-19 cases spread through the U.S. and Idaho, we’re committed to keeping you updated and informed. You can get updated info on cases, closures and how to stay healthy at any time on our Coronavirus news blog.
