The PHL COVID-19 Fund was launched March 19, 2020 and led by the Philadelphia Foundation and the United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey (UWGPSNJ). It rapidly deployed aid to nonprofits serving on the front lines of the coronavirus.
Over the course of one year, this extraordinary collaborative effort among philanthropy, business, government and community leaders awarded close to 600 grants totaling over $18.4 million.
We are grateful to all those who generously contributed to the fund to help their neighbors in need. The final round of grants has been announced.
The Philadelphia Foundation now has launched the PHL COVID-19 Recovery Fund, with a focus on aiding regional nonprofits in long-term recovery efforts.
