The application for requesting resources from the local response funds will be available soon.

Nonprofits: The North Carolina Center for Nonprofits has put together a resource to help you take steps to safeguard your employees, operations, and communities.

Local Response Funds

The Clemmons Community Foundation also wants to provide resources to help front-line charitable organizations with two established  COVID-19 local response funds - one for Clemmons and Lewisville and a fund for Yadkin County.

Every aspect of our communities is being affected by the efforts to stem a large public health impact, but the economic impact is already being felt. Charitable organizations serving our residents are experiencing larger demand for services and yet also a significant reduction in gifts due to cancelled meetings and fundraising activities as well as investment reductions.

We need our nonprofits to stay strong. They are on the front lines of providing support and relief during this ever-evolving situation.

Please join us in spreading the word about these funds and encourage gifts... of any size. Together, we can avert an even more serious impact, namely critical damage to the vital organizations that have helped our neighbors, friends, and other residents in need for many years. If there are charitable organizations that you normally support, we encourage you send them a direct gift along with your encouragement to help them get through this time.

Tax-deductible contributions to the Local Response Fund can be made online by clicking the fund of interest below or by check made payable to the Clemmons Community Foundation (P.O. Box 567, Clemmons, NC 27012). Contributing to this new fund is one of many ways any person, institution, or company can make a difference.

Inquiries about the Fund

The initial phase of the fund is intended to be a rapid response to urgent needs.  As the foundation and its partners learn more about local needs and the changing nature of this situation, the process will likely adapt. Details about how nonprofits can request and access resources from the COVID-19 Response Funds will be announced soon, once donations have begun to accumulate.

General questions and inquiries about the Funds can be directed to the foundation’s Program Officer, Mark Batten, at mark@clemmonsfoundation.org.

Interested donors and partners who have questions may contact the foundation’s President and CEO, Sandi Scannelli, at sandi@clemmonsfoundation.org.

Frequently Asked Questions

My organization is interested in resources from the Fund. How can we be considered?

The process for requesting funding from the COVID-19 Response Fund will be announced in the coming days, as resources are raised.However, it should be noted that this fund is designed to make grants only to501(c)(3) non-profit organizations, and groups fiscally sponsored by a 501(c)(3)organizations. 

May I target my donation to a specific organization?

To ensure that we can coordinate and share resources as quickly as possible, donations may not be restricted to individual grantee. If you have a specific organization you would like to support, we encourage you to give directly to that organization.

Should I give to this Fund instead of making other donations?

No. This Fund is not intended to be the only vehicle to give funds to nonprofits working at the frontlines of the COVID-19 outbreak. You are encouraged to give directly to organizations you may have supported in the past or nonprofits you know are addressing needs in our community. This fund is another vehicle through which those needs will be addressed. 

Is there a geographic focus for this fund?

Yes. The COVID-19 Response Funds will prioritize funding for organizations serving Clemmons, Lewisville, and its surrounding communities, and Yadkin County. Donors seeking to support organizations outside this footprint are encouraged to make direct gifts or to reach out to that area’s community foundation for assistance in getting resources targeted to that region.

Will you announce funding decisions?

We expect that grants from this Fund will be made on a continual basis, beginning within the next few weeks. We will publish the names of grantees and more information on a regular basis as we’re able.  

How will the Fund shift gears if needed?

The Fund priorities may evolve as our area adapts to theCOVID-19 pandemic. We will continue to prioritize communities most impacted.Crisis philanthropy recognizes the need to provide immediate resources for triage, as well as the importance of recovery resources to ensure community resilience.

I am an individual affected by the COVID-19 situation. Can I apply for assistance?

The foundation understands the COVID-19 pandemic is having and will continue to have a significant impact on individuals and families. Working with local agencies, the foundation will work to move resources as quickly as possible to community-based organizations that are directly supporting local families and residents who are most affected. But unfortunately, we cannot offer direct funds to individuals at this time. Organizations that offer individuals and families  assistance and resources are available at the top of this page.
