Foundation’s COVID-19 grants top $100K

DUBOIS COUNTY, Ind. (Inside INdiana Business) – The Dubois County Community Foundation has awarded a second round of grants to local healthcare and nonprofit organizations in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Along with its $50,000 donation in March, the organization says the second round of grants brings its total relief funding to more than $100,000 in Dubois County.

“We are prepared to respond to the needs of our community as they continue to arise,” said Clayton Boyles, executive director of the community foundation.

In its second phase of grantmaking, the organization has provided grants to Jasper-based Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center, Salvation Army, and the Tri County YMCA, among others.

“In addition to immediate response, we remain focused on long-term effects on the viability of nonprofits disproportionately impacted by the pandemic,” Boyles added.

Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center received the largest grant at $25,000, which the organization says will be used to purchase new sanitation equipment as well as technology allowing medical staff to virtually connect with patients.

The foundation says it will continue to accept funding requests through an expedited application process. More information can be found by clicking here.
