Locally, nationally and around the world, COVID-19 has transformed our social and economic landscape. In the Gunnison Valley, the community was essentially "closed for business" as of March 15, 2020, the height of Spring Break high season. Local nonprofits and businesses will see significant negative impacts for the foreseeable future.
Nonprofit organizations and entities serving vulnerable populations and seeing increased demand to meet basic human needs will be prioritized.
Started by two generous couples - one with $100 and one with $15,000 - no gift is too small and the sky's the limit with this COVID-19 local response fund.
UPDATE on April 1: Over $125,000 has been raised. Keep it up! The application is open, and you can find FAQs and helpful resources HERE. A running list of grants made will be available on that same webpage by April 8th.
(If you would prefer to write a check, please make it payable to Community Foundation of the Gunnison Valley or CFGV. Mail to PO Box 7057, Gunnison, CO 81230, and write "COVID-19 Response" in the memo line).
