ACF announces COVID-19 Regional Response Fund

Over the last week, our region has been heavily impacted by the outbreak of COVID-19. Businesses have cutback operations, events have been cancelled, schools have closed. It is not business as usual. The safety and wellbeing of everyone in the community is the top priority. And, we know that many will feel the impacts of this virus for months to come. 

Aspen Community Foundation (ACF) has established the COVID-19 Regional Response Fund to channel needed resources to respond to the immediate and long-term needs of the Aspen to Parachute region. Monies raised will be disbursed to nonprofit organizations or government entities supporting access to appropriate healthcare and meeting essential human needs such as food access, rent and utilities assistance, and emergency services for individuals and families impacted by the virus.

ACF is closely monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak and its impact on the community, particularly on our vulnerable neighbors. We are coordinating with our counties’ public health and human services departments, school districts, family resource centers, food pantries, and other nonprofit partners to identify and respond to specific needs as they arise.

ACF needs your help to provide these needed resources. Please consider contributing to the COVID-19 Regional Response Fund and support the children, families and individuals impacted by this virus.

As an organization committed to serving the Aspen to Parachute region since 1980, we are called to action to help those impacted by the disaster and disruption. Beginning with Hurricane Katrina and through 2018’s Lake Christine Fire, ACF has been directing philanthropic support to those in need. 

We hope you'll join us in this effort.
