The Steuben County Community Foundation Board of Directors has designated $100,000 to activate the Steuben County Disaster Response Fund to begin addressing the rapidly developing situation in our community as a result of COVID-19. This nonpermanent fund will be used to mobilize grant dollars for community organizations affected by the virus, and SCCF is actively listening to local entities to understand current needs.
The Board approved an initial grant from this fund for $50,000 to Cameron Memorial Community Hospital as Cameron has taken the lead in addressing the immediate health challenges in Steuben County posed by this crisis. The board is regularly reassessing the changing community needs, and future grants will be deployed from this fund.
Community donors are encouraged to assist in this effort to support local nonprofits by donating to the Steuben County Disaster Response Fund. SCCF is open to collaborating with other funders and learning more about ways to make resources available to community needs. Contact the SCCF office at 260-665-6656, or email SCCF President and CEO Jennifer Danic at [email protected] with questions.
Donations to the Steuben County Disaster Response Fund can be made online here, or you can mail a check to our office at 1701 N Wayne St, Angola, IN 46703.
