A continuing response to the crisis at-hand

Since the COVID-19 crisis began to unfold, generous New Hampshire people have rallied to help their neighbors, giving more than $4 million into the Foundation's Community Crisis Action Fund. The Foundation has made more than $9.5 million in grants to help sustain our communities through this crisis.

The Foundation opened the Community Crisis Action Fund on March 20 to help respond to the needs in our communities — and generous New Hampshire people have rallied, giving an unprecedented $4,090,868 into that fund (in amounts ranging from $25 to $1 million) to help our communities in this time of crisis. (A complete list of gifts to this fund is available here.) Every penny is equally appreciated, and every penny is going out into the community. Click here to contribute to the Community Crisis Action Fund.

Since this crisis began to unfold in March, $9,544,797 in grants have been made in response (a complete list is available here). The following lists of grants and gifts were prepared with care and with every effort to correctly reflect all generous donors and grants made.
