Response and Recovery Community Fund

About the Fund

How do you decide which of the Chippewa Valley's many nonprofits to support as they cope with the COVID-19 crisis? If you’re not sure, the Response and Recovery Community Fund offers a great option.

During Phase 1 of granting, this fund was called the Quick Response Community Fund, and it distributed almost $275,000 to 42 local nonprofits. Now renamed the Response and Recovery Community Fund, it will continue to support nonprofits as they address pandemic-related needs. 

The grant cycle is hosted by ECCF and supported by United Way of the Greater Chippewa Valley and the Community Foundation of Chippewa County. Together, they will review grant applications and recommend funding awards, which will be announced in early August.

The collective impact of Phase 1 and Phase 2 is approaching $1 million. With your help, we can exceed that goal and help even more people in need. Please consider a gift today!


Your gift will truly make a difference.
