Last Spring, The Fund for Sandwich also created a COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund to help residents impacted by the pandemic. It raised and distributed more than $13,000 to local nonprofits to help meet the increased demand for food, extend services to seniors in need, and provide emergency financial assistance to residents for rent, mortgage payments, and other basic needs.
The Fund’s Advisory Committee will continue to seek private donations to support the wide range of nonprofit organizations serving the Sandwich community and will conduct a fifth grantmaking process in 2021 to support additional organizations.
