The Princeton Area Community Foundation, in collaboration with other community leaders, has created a COVID-19 Relief & Recovery Fund.
People in our region, particularly our low-income children, families, and seniors, will face increased struggles because of reduced or lost income, food and housing insecurity, health needs and childcare needs related to school closures. We will partner with our nonprofit community to address the immediate and long-term needs of our region.
As information is rapidly changing, we are communicating with government leaders, private foundations and nonprofit organizations to assess local needs.
We are also inviting donors and funding partners to join us to ensure our region is served.
We have waived our administrative fee for this fund, so 100% of donations can be directed to those in need. (Gifts by credit card are assessed fees by our merchant services.)

We have a tremendous outpouring of leadership support, with over $2.5 million in funding. But we know much more will be needed. To date, we have received more than $4.1 million in requests for funding. If you are looking for an effective way to help the most vulnerable, we hope you will consider joining us.
