COVID-19: Unprecedented Crisis, Regional Response

As a community foundation, SVCF is positioned to meet the ongoing needs of our local communities and take on unexpected challenges, including response to the spread of COVID-19. The ripple effects of the coronavirus pandemic hit low-income families, nonprofit organizations and small businesses especially hard. In response, SVCF has led multiple efforts with our Bay Area philanthropic, government and corporate partners to protect public health and assist those affected by the disease and its impact.
