Morgan County, INβ€” The Community Foundation of Morgan County (CFMC) has established a COVID-19 Emergency Fund in response to meeting community needs and to provide immediate support to our local food pantries that help the most at-risk financially in Morgan County.

The COVID-19 Emergency Fund will accept online only donations through the CFMC website. Funds will be evenly distributed weekly per the guidelines below. Any donations raised Sunday through Thursday of a week will be provided each Friday to food pantries.

Guidelines for the grants are as follows:

  • 1. Any Morgan County Food Pantry can apply.
  • 2. The distribution percentage/amount will be based on how often the pantry serves clients and how many average clients they see on a pantry day.
  • 3. The distribution must be used on food items only.

“In this very uncertain time, we know that there are many community members looking for a way to help others. Over the past several days, we have received numerous calls from concerned residents asking how to find available food resources. If you have visited your local grocery store, you know that resources are very limited at this time. In particular, we have many friends and neighbors who have lost hourly employment, are needing to shelter in place, or are caring for elderly family members. Of all the necessities we have In Morgan County, we should ensure that everyone has enough to eat.” CFMC President Ed Kominowski

Every dollar donated into the COVID-19 Emergency Fund will be put into action in our Morgan County food pantries that are serving the most at-risk financially. You can donate directly here.

The mission of the CFMC is to connect donors and their charitable giving with our evolving community needs in order to enhance the quality of life for current and future generations through impact grant making.
