The crisis caused by COVID-19 has impacted our community’s nonprofit organizations and the people that they serve in a significant way. With doors closed for an indefinite amount of time, many executive directors of these organizations face the crushing reality that they may not have the funds to reopen or operate at full capacity.

In response to the effects of COVID-19, Bridge Builders Community Foundations and the United Way of Venango County are partnering to establish the COVID-19 Relief Fund to support the nonprofits impacted by the virus. Input from the nonprofit sector and other organizations will play a critical role in helping the partnership better understand specific issues faced by the community.

More information on the fund and its intended use will be released soon.

For the safety of the staff and the public, only online donations will be accepted at this time. Donations can be made online at or
All donations will go directly toward supporting the jeopardized nonprofit organizations that provide direct services to the community. Our community is strong, and together we can accomplish anything.
