Beginning in March, the Parkersburg Area Community Foundation (PACF) began working to raise money for its Safety Net Fund and Hunger Fund to provide COVID-19 relief grants to area nonprofit agencies impacted by the pandemic. The community answered the PACF’s call for help and together they’ve raised more than $320,000 for the two COVID-19 relief funds. The PACF has made a commitment to grant 100% of donations received for COVID-19 relief back into the region.
The PACF recently awarded $38,241 in its fifth round of COVID-19 pandemic response grants, bringing the total awarded to date to more than $296,365, a total which also includes PACF Donor Advised Fund grants. Several of the recent grants were awarded through partnership with the Sisters Health Foundation (noted with an *). Agencies that received funding during the PACF’s fifth round of grants include:
