The SCCF Board of Directors designated $100,000 to activate the Steuben County Disaster Response Fund. The goal is to address the rapidly developing situation in our community as a result of COVID-19. SCCF intends to use this nonpermanent fund to mobilize grant dollars for the community organizations affected by the virus. 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. Cameron has taken the lead in addressing the immediate health challenges in Steuben County posed by this crisis. Moving forward, the board is regularly reassessing the changing community needs, and future grants will be deployed from this fund.
Community donors who wish to assist in this effort may donate 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.
