NonProfit Initiative

On September 9th, hosted by the Community Foundation in Green Valley and Community Advisory Committee of COVID19 Community Impact Fund, these stakeholders were gathered to discuss and address a deficit in grant funding estimated around $1.7 million to local nonprofits over the next 6 months. As this point, we are still in a relief stage and need to devise a recovery plan of action.
