SVCF is leading an effort with our other Bay Area philanthropic partners on a regional response to this public health crisis. Our COVID-19 Coronavirus Regional Response Fund provides the community an opportunity to help our region meet the developing challenges linked with COVID-19 Coronavirus. Funds from SVCF’s COVID-19 Coronavirus Regional Response Fund will support lead organizations representing each of the ten Bay Area counties and their immediate efforts in addressing COVID-19 related challenges in their respective counties. The counties and their lead organizations are:
