We need your help to raise $20,000 by the end of December! This is a Matching Campaign and your support will be doubled!

The Community Foundation of the Verdugos (CFV) COVID-19 Response Fund provides flexible Board-designated resources for organizations as they respond to the impact of the COVID-19 coronavirus and quarantines. Donors may make charitable gifts to the Fund (Tax ID EIN#95-6068137) that will benefit urgent community needs.

Individuals can make an online gift of any amount!

The CFV is appealing to the hearts and capabilities of generous donors from the Verdugo Region to give locally to help sustain social services and other efforts to safeguard and assist those who are vulnerable or at risk of being vulnerable because of the pandemic.

Donor Advised Fund Holders can contribute!

  • Those who have donor advised funds (DAFs) at financial institutions such as Vanguard, Schwab, Fidelity, etc. are being asked to contribute toward the CFV COVID-19 Response Fund to highlight their commitment to local community.
  • The CFV’s own fund holders who maintain a donor advised fund (DAF) with us can contribute to the CFV Covid-19 Response Fund OR you can commit to making a grant from your own DAF to a charity that is working to alleviate food and shelter insecurities or economic hardships.

Every dollar raised or granted is matched up to $20,000!

All community Heros to this effort will be publicly recognized and nonprofit stories from this campaign will be shared in early 2021.

The CFV, through the efforts of the League of California Community Foundations, received a $60,000 grant this year from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to alleviate food and shelter insecurities and economic hardships due to the pandemic. The CFV granted $40,000 of this to nonprofits in the early summer. The remaining $20,000 is leveraged in this matching, year-end campaign.

Now, at a most vulnerable time of the year, let us show that we can give another $40,000 of support to nonprofits. Your action is needed now.

Community foundations across the state and nation have launched similar efforts to activate philanthropy in their local communities and provide much-needed financial support as conditions change in the coming weeks and months. Thank YOU so much for being a part of this effort!

We convey gratitude to the dedicated health care professionals, educators, nonprofit organizations, caregivers, community leaders, first responders, volunteers, and particularly our small businesses and restaurants who are all working tirelessly to protect and serve us all.
