Community Foundation Awards $380K to 25 County Non-Profits

| April 10, 2021, 10:10 AM

The Community Foundation of Anne Arundel County (CFAAC) recently distributed its eighth cycle of grants since the COVID crisis began, through its Community Crisis Response Fund. To date, 265 grants to 134 unique nonprofits totaling $1.63M have been awarded. Most recently, CFAAC funded $330,500 to 25 local nonprofits that serve the county’s most vulnerable and at-risk populations including seniors, children, low-income or food-insecure families, and the recently unemployed.

This latest grantmaking provided funding for organizations that provide human services and emergency assistance, as well as health/mental health and educational resources.

“There is hope on the horizon for many as the vaccine rollout continues, however, there are still many in our community who are struggling,” said Mary Spencer, President & CEO of CFAAC. “CFAAC is proud to be able to help support the nonprofits who continue to aid those in need through grants from our Community Crisis Response Fund. There is a lot of valuable work being done to organize and coordinate donations of food, goods, and direct services to people whose lives have been disrupted by the virus. Through our community’s generous donors, we can remain steadfast to helping these organizations help others.”

CFAAC continues to raise money from Donor Advised Funds, individual donors, foundations, and local businesses. CFAAC has made grants through the Community Crisis Response Fund since the beginning of the pandemic, adapting and expanding the focus areas based on the needs of the community, and will continue for as long as funding is available. Grants are made to local nonprofit organizations that are addressing the increase in community needs and demand for services due to the pandemic.
