COVID-19’s economic impact has impacted some families especially hard. Fortunately, Cobb County is home to a strong, capable and mighty group of non-profit organizations that, for some, could be the one thing standing in the way of hunger, eviction, homelessness, or worse.

Created by the Cobb Community Foundation (CCF), the Cobb COVID-19 Community Response Fund provides flexible resources to organizations meeting critical needs in Cobb. Charitable grants assist organizations and programs working to provide residents with access to food, prescriptions and healthcare, childcare and basic needs. The CCF’s goal is to expand local capacity by supporting the nonprofits helping individuals and families experiencing hardship because of the outbreak, related closures and disruptions.

There are many reasons to give through the Cobb COVID-19 Community Response Fund. In a recent Forbes article, 10 Ways Community Foundations Are A Best- Bet For Disaster Giving, highlighted how Community Foundations are essentially philanthropic hubs that provide leadership, stewardship and leverage for a broad range of individual charitable contributions. Cobb Community Foundation is waiving all administrative fees for this fund in order to maximize the impact of your generosity during this critical time.
