We know that organizations are facing a tough time and need support to continue serving their communities during the COVID-19 crisis.
If this sounds like your organization, there is help from the San Bernardino County Nonprofit Assistance Fund.
On October 6, the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors approved $5 million in financial support to the nonprofit community using CARES Act funding. IECF, which is managing the grant program, will oversee the application and review process, in collaboration with the Inland Empire Funders Alliance. Grant awards will be dispersed directly by San Bernardino County to IECF-approved nonprofits.
With over 5,500 organizations countywide, the new program will assist nonprofits headquartered in or who have an office in San Bernardino County who have experienced a loss of revenue or increased expenses following the COVID-19 crisis.
The grant program is open and accepting applications through November 16, 2020.
Under the new program, grants will be made in the amounts of $2,500 -$20,000 and awarded to nonprofits that demonstrate reimbursable COVID-19 expenses that were incurred in response to the pandemic or to mitigate the effects of COVID on their operations.
Nonprofits interested in applying for a grant are encouraged to review the grant guidelines and application process at www.iegives.org/sbconpaf. Organizations with a 501(c)3 status are encouraged to apply.
For help with applying, register for our online information sessions: October 27, November 4, or November 10. If you cannot attend, all sessions will be recorded and uploaded on the website.
