10 Apr “DUTCHESS RESPONDS” FUND OPEN FOR REQUESTS
Applications Now Open for ‘Dutchess Responds Fund’
Grants available to support nonprofit organizations meeting
vital community needs during Coronavirus pandemic
Poughkeepsie… Dutchess County Executive Marcus J. Molinaro and Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley Interim President & CEO Nevill Smythe today announced the Dutchess Responds Fund has initiated a rolling application process to support nonprofits that have been providing critical support to the community as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
County Executive Molinaro said, “As we face the Coronavirus pandemic together, many have had to rapidly shift the way they deliver services from in-person to virtual platforms or have increased their outreach to ensure those who are disproportionately affected by this crisis have their critical needs met, such as access to food or medication. We are grateful to the nonprofit organizations who have already shouldered the burden of responding to the needs of our community and are proud to join Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley in offering these grants to support their efforts. If you have the means to help, I hope you’ll join us as #DutchessResponds to this health situation, and give what you can to the Dutchess Responds Fund.”
