Community Foundations of Collier County and Southwest Florida Launch Coronavirus Relief Funds

Posted on March 16, 2020

The Community Foundation of Collier County and the Southwest Florida Community Foundation have each activated emergency relief funds: CFCC’s Collier Comes Together Fund and SWFLCF’s Emergency Relief Fund to collect donations to aid in Coronavirus relief.

The community’s trusted philanthropic partners have established these funds to complement the work of public health officials and expand local capacity to address the outbreak as effectively as possible. Donations to this fund will help rapidly deploy resources to basic needs and healthcare nonprofit organizations to support their programs as well as their staff at the front lines of our community’s coronavirus outbreak. 

Donors are assured that help will reach its intended cause. As Community Foundations are 501(c)(3) charitable organization, donations are tax-deductible. 100% of all funds will be distributed for Coronavirus relief with no administrative fees.

“Now, more than ever, it is so important that our community come together to support Collier County in this time of crisis. With our collaboration with the Southwest Florida Community Foundation, we can help support our nonprofits who will in turn provide aid to the community,” said Eileen Connolly-Keesler, Community Foundation of Collier County President & CEO. “We know our donors are engaged in responding to critical needs and will help us provide aid where it is needed most.”
