In response to the current crisis and unprecedented circumstances caused by the global COVID-19 pandemic, St. David’s Foundation has launched a $10 million COVID-19 Recovery Fund to support nonprofits during this challenging and uncertain time.
This fund is designed to complement the efforts of local health departments, public health officials, and federal subsidies – while expanding local capacity to address aspects of the outbreak as immediately and efficiently as possible.
Beyond these immediate needs facing the community, they believe this public health crisis has created an extraordinary moment to call for greater and more equal health justice within their Central Texas community, and are committed to partnering with their neighbors throughout this time.
The Foundation will determine “organization size” based on your organization’s operational budget from the previous fiscal year.
As determined by Guide Star and St. David’s Foundation parameters:
“Small-sized” organizations (those with an operating budget up to $300,000) are eligible to apply for funding up to$50,000 for 12 months.
“Medium-sized” organizations (those with an operating budget between $300,000 to $2 million) are eligible to apply for funding up to $100,000 for 12 months.
“Large-sized” organizations (those with an operating budget of more than $2 million) are eligible to apply for funding for up to $250,000 for 12 months.
1. The lead organization/applicant must be a tax exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization or a public entity in Central Texas (Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Travis, Williamson counties);
2. If your organization meets all other criteria but is not officially a 501(c)(3), a fiscal sponsor is needed in order to apply for this grant.
Priority will be given to:
a) direct service providers – such as those supporting essential healthcare, human services, mental health, and food insecurity;
b) organizations with the most immediate and intermediate COVID-19 related needs and/or organizations that do not have other immediate funding sources;
c) organizations that work in partnership with populations experiencing poverty or having limited access to basic services.
Utilize This Offer
The fund will provide grants supporting both immediate and intermediate needs of nonprofits working on the front lines to provide emergency assistance to those impacted by COVID-19 in some of Central Texas’ most vulnerable communities.
Priority populations for this fund include older adults at risk of social isolation, women, children, and vulnerable populations.
Special attention will be given to their neighbors in rural communities within the five-county area (Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Travis, Williamson).
Small and medium sized organizations, organizations led by women or persons of color, and organizations serving communities of color and immigrant families are strongly encouraged to apply.
Application Deadline: Thursday, May 7th at 3:00pm CST.
