Foundation Status in Response to the Covid-19 Pandemic

The Community Foundation of the Verdugos (CFV) is providing this update in response to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.

To ensure that the health of donors, grantees, community-at-large, board members and staff is at the forefront, the Foundation office remains closed to the public in response to California’s “Safer at Home” Policy. The CFV continues to monitor Los Angeles County Public Health’s communication on the Covid-19 pandemic as well as that of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Although the physical office remains closed (as of this June/July 2020 posting), staff are working remotely and intermittently in the office for key areas of service between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. If possible, please do not leave phone messages; instead, using the emails below will provide you with a more timely response to any query:

Donations, donor fund information/donor grants, and general Foundation Business:

Edna Karinski, CEO                Email

Finances, donor fund information, and scholarships:

Julie Burg, Controller               Email

We are here to serve you in the best way that we are able. Donor advisors wishing to have a grant issued to a nonprofit should not hesitate to contact Edna Karinski via email so that processing can begin as efficiently as possible. We thank those fund holders who have continued to support local and national nonprofits with grants even during these difficult times.
