Maps Community Recovery Fund
During this challenging time, we want you to know that we care deeply about our Mid-Willamette Valley Maps community. In addition to Maps member assistance programs, our Maps Community Foundation is providing grants to local nonprofits and schools that are supporting individuals and families most affected by the health, economic and social impacts of the coronavirus crisis.
In March, we quickly distributed $20,000 in emergency grant funding to eight local nonprofits who are operating on the frontlines, offering emergency food, supplies and financial assistance. The Maps Community Recovery Fund was recently established to provide additional support to our community now, and over the months to come.
GRANTS AVAILABLE: The Maps Community Recovery Fund will rapidly deploy resources to community-based organizations, with grant applications reviewed on a weekly basis. Grants will range from $1,000-$5,000. Marion and Polk county 501c3 nonprofits, groups fiscally sponsored by 501c3s, and school districts are all eligible to apply for grants. We are not able to directly fund individuals or families.
Emergency response grants will be distributed on a rolling basis as funding remains available. We anticipate multiple rounds of funding to address both the urgent needs now and the longer-term recovery. Click on the link below to apply for a grant.
Maps cares about our community. Since March, 26 grants and $66,500 in support has been given to our nonprofit community. Funded Organizations
DONATIONS WELCOME: Initial funding is made possible with generous support from Maps Community Foundation and Maps Credit Union. Additional donations are being accepted from Maps members, staff and the community who are seeking a way to give locally to help our neighbors in need. 100% of funds donated will go to support nonprofits and schools in Marion and Polk counties where Maps has branches and delivers financial services.
