Blue Shield of California Foundation (San Francisco, CA)
Blue Shield of California Foundation announced $6.8 million in grants to help Californians who—due to economic insecurity, heightened risk of domestic violence, or fear due to immigration status—face the greatest health risks in the COVID-19 pandemic.
The grants will support 14 community foundations addressing specific needs in their communities, provide immediate flexibility for domestic violence shelters, and aid organizations in efforts to meet the needs of low-wage workers and help people get basic necessities. Grants will also support efforts to get accurate information to the most vulnerable communities, including immigrant and non-English-speaking communities.
Included in these grants is also $1 million to help launch the California Immigrant Resilience Fund, a new statewide fund to provide direct relief to undocumented immigrants during this crisis—and to encourage lasting solutions that protect health beyond this moment. As a seed funder, the foundation recognizes that undocumented immigrants who are ineligible for federal response assistance have been hit particularly hard by this crisis. The California Immigrant Resilience Fund will provide direct relief to families to help offset the health and economic risks they face due to COVID-19.

Donate4Sacramento (Sacramento, CA)
Donate4Sacramento released a fifth round of funding in the amount of $134,000, enabling a total of $1,044,787 to reach individuals in crisis in the fund’s five-week existence.
United Way California Capital Region, one of the fund’s five intermediary partners, has provided fund relief directly to 448 of Sacramento’s most vulnerable families in the amount of $500 each using Donate4Sacramento dollars. These funds help cover rent, food, and other basic needs for families experiencing increased financial hardships due to unpaid leave, loss of wages, or care for a sick loved one.
Donate4Sacramento is also providing rapid and real impact for hundreds of minority-owned businesses, immigrants, social service organizations, homeless individuals and families in need:
Sacramento Asian Pacific Chamber of Commerce and the Sacramento Inclusive Economic Development Coalition have given $1,000 grants to 49 minority-owned microbusinesses located along one of Sacramento County’s seven underserved business corridors. The Chamber is preparing a second round of $1,000 allocations to 67 more minority-owned small businesses, totaling 116 micro grants.
Sacramento Food Bank and Family Services was one of the first organizations to receive funds. $169,134 from Donate4Sacramento funds built up the food bank’s food reserves and capacity to distribute food supplies to families and individuals experiencing immediate consequences of lost wages, unstable finances or health, and other impacts of COVID-19.
The Sacramento Region Community Foundation directed dollars to organizations providing vital services in the Sacramento region such as emergency assistance, food security, health care, child care, and those facing severe operational challenges or non-recoverable expenses like Volunteers of America-Northern CA, Focus on Family Foundation, Neighborhood Wellness Foundation, Sacramento Native American Health Center, Assistance League of Sacramento, and ReIMAGINE Mack Road Foundation.
The Center at Sierra Health Foundation has provided $30,000 to Sacramento Area Congregations Together to disburse $500 grants to undocumented and migrant families. This week, $40,000 went to the Center for Workers’ Rights for its worker hotline, $20,000 to Voice of the Youth for its meal preparation and delivery program, and $15,000 to Hmong Youth and Parents United to support the area’s Southeast Asian communities.

Sacramento Steps Forward has allocated up to $5,000 each to 16 separate organizations for meals, sanitation, survival gear, and hygiene supplies. It has also enabled Loaves and Fishes to prepare 200 meals a day Monday through Friday for delivery to homeless encampments.
The Center at Sierra Health Foundation, United Way California Capital Region, Sacramento Region Community Foundation, Sacramento Asian Pacific Chamber of Commerce, and Sacramento Steps Forward serve as intermediary funding partners, each administering a rapid release of funds for supplies and support throughout Sacramento County, California. These organizations have established infrastructure to deploy funds quickly to trusted community organizations working directly with impacted communities.
The Sacramento COVID-19 Response Fund has raised $1,202,397 to date and has released $1,044,787 of it to the intermediary partners.

Episcopal Health Foundation (Houston, TX)
Episcopal Health Foundation (EHF) announced a $10 million plan to address the long-term effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, while also helping nonprofits and organizations continue business operations to serve at-risk communities across Texas.
EHF’s plan includes a COVID-19 grant program that helps the foundation’s grantees and partners across Texas continue business operations during the crisis. The program will prioritize partner organizations that are directly involved in COVID-19 response, serving populations likely to be disproportionately impacted by COVID-19, and sustaining financial losses due to that work. The first round of grants will be awarded in May and EHF expects to announce another round of COVID-19 funding later in 2020.
In addition to the grant program, EHF is establishing an emergency loan fund that offers two-year, zero-interest loans of up to $1 million to help grantees and partners that have additional mounting financial needs. The foundation also provided technical assistance to help organizations apply for the CARES Act’s Paycheck Protection Program earlier this month and will continue that support during a possible second round of federal funding for the program. EHF is also offering technical assistance to help partner organizations apply for COVID-19-related government aid programs and other funding opportunities.
Additionally, EHF will conduct an extensive research project related to COVID-19. The project’s goal will be to provide leaders working on relief efforts with reliable information about Texans’ needs and priorities for ongoing recovery. EHF is also working with partners across the state to develop a program to support those facing social isolation during this crisis by establishing a scalable program that connects volunteers electronically with seniors, nursing home residents, and others who have become even more isolated from others due to COVID-19.
EHF leaders believe this multi-approach strategy will provide a wide range of help to key organizations working to improve health, not just health care across Texas.

As part of the $250 million the Gates Foundation is allocating for COVID-19 response and research, the Philanthropy Partnerships team, which leads the PowerOf project, is making $10 million in grants to strengthen the nonprofit sector in the U.S. These grants are divided into four buckets: emergency funds; sector advocates; promoting equity; and digital infrastructure for volunteering.

Ethel and James Flinn Foundation (Detroit, MI)
The Michigan Health Endowment Fund and several funding partners are coming together to provide $2.95 million to help 61 Michigan providers and safety net organizations ramp up telehealth efforts, which can help patients access critical care without putting themselves, their families, or their doctors at risk. While many providers have already planned for or begun offering telemedicine options, the pandemic has made this shift more urgent. The grants will help organizations implement new procedures, set up billing services, train or add staff, educate patients about telehealth, treat uninsured patients, and procure HIPAA compliant licenses or equipment.
In addition to the Michigan Health Endowment Fund (Health Fund), funders include the Ethel and James Flinn Foundation, the Metro Health Foundation, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, and the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan Foundation. Grantees include Federally Qualified Health Centers, behavioral health providers, human service agencies, PACE programs, Area Agencies on Aging, and other safety net providers.
Many of the grant recipients are located in the populous areas of Southeast Michigan and metropolitan Grand Rapids, which are also seeing the highest number of COVID-19 cases. For example, the Detroit Area Agency on Aging will use the funding to virtually support older adults impacted by COVID-19, as well as develop a sustainable telehealth program to address physical and mental health needs of older adults. Outside of population centers, Michigan’s rural communities tend to have fewer providers and gaps in transportation networks. Telehealth can help bridge these gaps, especially as in-person visits and transportation options are restricted. Northwest Michigan Health Services, Inc. will receive funds to provide medical, dental, and behavioral health treatment to residents across seven counties.

Kansas Health Foundation (Wichita, KS)
The Kansas Health Foundation (KHF) approved $5.325 million in grant funding to support statewide COVID-19 efforts that provide access to health care, address food insecurity, and assist the United Way of the Plains with pandemic response. To date, KHF has authorized more than $16.3 million to support emergency COVID-19 response and recovery efforts across Kansas.
- Health Clinics—for emergency core operating support to the 19 federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) in Kansas. FQHCs are health clinics that connect low-income or uninsured Kansans to care. In the last month, between 50 to 75 percent of routine care visits and procedures that provide financial support for clinics were postponed, significantly reducing operating income. At the same time, these clinics are responding to emergent care needs related to the pandemic, which has increased costs. KHF believes safety net clinics provide vitally critical access to care for vulnerable Kansas populations; it is essential that these entities remain viable beyond the pandemic. ($2.825 million)
- Food Insecurity—food banks in Kansas are experiencing a surge of requests for assistance and mandatory school closures have limited or denied meaningful food access for children who regularly receive and rely upon free- or reduced-price school-based meals. Funds will be allocated to food bank support and meal delivery for children. ($2 million)
- United Way of the Plains—to provide focused support to Wichita/Sedgwick County, Kansas during this challenging time. United Way of the Plains is well-positioned to provide front-line support to more than 80 nonprofit programs, and to assist laid off workers and those affected by stay-at-home orders. KHF funding will also support 2-1-1, the United Way of the Plains’ statewide resource and referral system where Kansans can access information for health and social service programs, including child care, health and mental health care information, food assistance, and questions about COVID-19. ($500,000)

New York Community Trust (New York)
The NYC COVID-19 Response & Impact Fund in the New York Community Trust announced that 276 New York City-based social services and arts and cultural nonprofits affected by the COVID-19 crisis have received support to date. These mainly small and mid-size nonprofits are receiving grants and interest-free loans totaling $44 million, with additional funding being issued to more organizations over the coming weeks. The support—which currently ranges from $8,000 to $250,000 given per grant and from $100,000 to $3 million per loan—is to help these vital community organizations across New York with the continuity of their daily operations and to help offset the lost revenue that has diminished their ability to pay rent, make payroll, and fulfill their public service missions.

Open Society Foundations (New York, NY)
The Open Society Foundations are making an investment of $130 million to combat the devastation of COVID-19—focusing on communities too often left out and left back by government policy. The disease will require two distinct and large phased responses in 2020. The first phase is weighted toward the most intense current flash points. A second phase will be dominated by investments in the Global South that will focus on economic interventions and rule of law issues that are already surfacing.
Funding will fall into four buckets: efforts to support low-income workers—domestic workers, caregivers, the undocumented, those in the informal and gig economies; to protect refugees, migrants, and asylum seekers, who face new COVID-19–related risks with virtually no structural supports; to ensure that as treatments and vaccines emerge, they are available and accessible by all; and to counter populist narratives and authoritarian power grabs in response to this crisis at the expense of civil liberties and human rights.
The Open Society Foundations is investing $68 million in new funds in the United States, redoubling efforts to support the low-wage worker ecosystem, which is suffering profound shocks from the virus. It expects that the work it is supporting in New York will be mirrored in cities and states across the country, and will provide models for the relief response around the world. These measures include:
- Funding to provide direct payments to immigrant workers and small business owners whose immigration status—many are undocumented—renders them unable to access federal stimulus funds
- Support for a public-private partnership to help the city launch emergency centers and staff to help provide childcare for the young children of essential workers and first responders
- Aid to organizations providing frontline support for vulnerable populations who face the greatest difficulty accessing essential services, especially the homeless.
The foundations are also investing in efforts to help ensure that vulnerable communities in emerging economies have equitable access to quality health care information and services, and that health care providers can get the equipment they need to adequately care for those communities. They has invested in efforts to rebuild following the devastation of COVID-19 in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Hungary, and Italy. It is giving grants to frontline service providers in Johannesburg and London as well as helping to fund a global effort to reduce mandatory detention, encouraging the many governments moving to release detainees in the face of the coronavirus to rethink the policies that created mass incarceration in the first place.
There is more in the works from its regional and national foundations around the world, from urgent assistance grants established by our foundations in Kyrgyzstan and Ukraine; meal delivery support for thousands of elderly, disabled, and chronically-ill in Armenia; meal delivery for vulnerable Roma across Europe; emergency funding to artists in Haiti; and more.
Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust (Phoenix, AZ)
Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust has awarded $2.51 million in emergency grants to help six hospitals and hospital systems in Maricopa County, Arizona respond to the COVID-19 health crisis. The Trust also contributed $350,000 to the new Arizona COVID-19 Community Response Fund and $50,000 to a collaborative effort to increase the production of personal protective equipment (PPE) in Arizona.
The emergency grants are part of the Trust’s ongoing commitment to be nimble and strategic in directing resources where needed to address challenges of COVID-19 and its unprecedented ripple effects in our communities. Since March 30, Piper Trust has awarded emergency grants totaling $9.2 million. These grants were awarded to scientific research-based organizations working to resolve mysteries about and find treatments for COVID-19, and to human services and arts and cultural nonprofits that are vitally important to our social and economic infrastructure.
Hospitals and hospital systems that received emergency grants for their critical COVID-19 work are:
- Banner Health Foundation ($750,000)
- Dignity Health Foundation ($500,000)
- HonorHealth Foundation ($500,000)
- Phoenix Children’s Hospital ($250,000)
- Valleywise Health Foundation ($500,000)
- Wickenburg Community Hospital Foundation ($10,000)
The unrestricted grants will help these hospitals and hospital systems adapt and respond directly to the pandemic, such as treating patients with a presumptive or confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis. Grant funds may also be used to support other hospital needs that have emerged due to the crisis, such as supplies, equipment, or services for health care professionals and staff.
Local philanthropies are collaborating to strengthen the state’s response to mitigate the novel coronavirus pandemic. In collaboration with Flinn Foundation and The Pakis Family Foundation, Piper Trust awarded $50,000 to the Arizona Apparel Foundation to support the work of its Fashion and Business Resource Innovation Center (FABRIC), which is investing in an industrial-level, computerized cutting machine and dozens of additional sewing machines to produce much-needed PPE. A newly designed, reusable gown is one of the items that FABRIC will produce. Dr. Ronald Gagliano of Dignity Health in Arizona is the creative mind behind the design of the gown.
Another collaborative effort underway is The Arizona COVID-19 Community Response Fund. This fund, established by the Arizona Community Foundation in partnership with a growing list of individuals, corporations, and foundations, supports nonprofit organizations across the state as they respond to the impact of COVID-19. Piper Trust contributed $350,000 to this fund.

The Rockefeller Foundation (New York, NY)
The Rockefeller Foundation, in consultation with leading economists, public health experts, and business leaders, released a new comprehensive National Covid-19 Testing Action Plan rooted in data and science and using testing and contact tracing to provide a roadmap for United States leaders to reopen the economy while safeguarding public health. The foundation is committing $15 million to the work, $10 million of which will support steps to operationalize in nearly 10 places.
As COVID-19 swept across the United States, leaders issued strict social distancing guidelines and shut down many parts of the economy and millions of Americans filed for unemployment. Government officials, business leaders, and many employees are anxious to restart the economy, but with no vaccine available and limited testing capacity, it has been unclear how to achieve this without causing a second wave of infections that would further devastate communities and the economy. The Rockefeller Foundation’s Treatment Action Plan will require extensive investment and the largest public health testing program in United States history, including:
- Launching the largest public health testing system to monitor infections and future infection waves
- Expanding the capacities and resources of thousands of small laboratories around the country to provide much of the expanded testing
- Establishing a medical reserve corps to distribute and oversee testing
- Hiring as many as 300,000 people to undertake a rigorous campaign of contact tracing
- Developing coordinated computer systems and a digital platform for information sharing and infection tracking
- Addressing the significant challenges around medical privacy and other ethical issues
- Creating a Pandemic Testing Board to oversee the testing scale-up and coordination between federal, state, and local jurisdictions.
The Rockefeller Foundation hired Dr. Jonathan Quick to lead its pandemic response. Dr. Quick has extensive experience in international public health with the World Health Organization, Management Sciences for Health, and the Duke Global Health Institute among others. He is the author of The End of Epidemics: The Looming Threat to Humanity and How to Stop It and an often sought adviser on managing pandemics.
Implementing the recommendations in the Action Plan could cost as much as $3 billion a day, or $90 billion a month. However, with widespread business closures costing the country $350 billion to $400 billion each month, a testing regimen that could sustain a partial reopening of the economy until a vaccine is widely available would pay for itself within the first month.
To drive action and implementation, the foundation is building a coalition called the Testing Solutions Group. Participating cities and states will be able to repeatedly and consistently test their citizens for Covid-19 from June 2020 through early 2021, learn from each other, and share best practices. To achieve this vision, the coalition has four objectives:
- Provide immediate support to mayors to enhance their testing and data capabilities—with a focus on the most vulnerable citizens. This may include direct funding as well as technical assistance to strengthen policies and strategies.
- Drive collaboration across cities to share and implement best practices.
- Bring together expertise from industry and academia to develop strategy and policy recommendations that support mayors and their leadership teams.
- Collect real-time data, evidence, and feedback from mayors implementing testing strategies.
There are significant challenges involved in implementing this Treatment Action Plan, including expanding critical lab supplies, hiring and training 100,000 to 300,000 community health workers to manage the extensive contact tracing needs, and balancing medical privacy issues with public health needs. All are needed to ensure that as people return to work, they do not put others and themselves at risk of infection. Finding solutions to these challenges will require participation, coordination, and collaboration across all sectors of society.

San Joaquin Valley Health Fund (Sacramento, CA)
The Center at Sierra Health Foundation, through the San Joaquin Valley Health Fund (SJVHF), announced that pledges to the SJVHF COVID-19 Response Cluster fund have reached $2,500,000. The rapid response fund was launched to provide immediate assistance to populations and communities most impacted by COVID-19. Donations to the fund make it possible to release initial disbursements totaling $450,000 to nine community-based nonprofit organizations providing direct support to farmworkers, undocumented individuals, immigrants, families, unhoused community members, formerly incarcerated individuals, and other particularly vulnerable populations throughout the San Joaquin Valley.
The nine organizations receiving initial grant awards from the fund are California Rural Legal Assistance Foundation, Californians for Pesticide Reform, Center on Race Poverty and the Environment, Faith in the Valley, Fathers and Families of San Joaquin, Fresno Interdenominational Refugee Ministries (FIRM), Leadership Counsel for Justice and Accountability, Radio Bilingue, and United Farm Workers Foundation.
Early commitments to the SJVHF COVID-19 Response Cluster have come from Sierra Health Foundation, The California Endowment, The California Wellness Foundation, Werner-Kohnstamm Family Giving Fund, an anonymous East Coast family foundation, the Grove Foundation, 11th Hour Fund—a program of the Schmidt Family Foundation, and numerous online individual donors. Additionally, an anonymous donor contributed more than $1.3 million to help the fund reach its initial fundraising goal of $2.5 million.
Grants will be issued to provide immediate relief like rental, food and utility assistance, essential supplies like toiletries, drinking water, over-the-counter medicine and toilet paper, and PPE essential for vulnerable farmworkers and immigrant service workers. Funds will also support the dissemination of accurate health information, and navigation and legal assistance for vulnerable community members so they can access other resources and supports.
In addition, The Center at Sierra Health Foundation is providing five federally qualified health centers with 1,300 plastic ponchos for their health providers’ use as disposable PPE.
