In response to the alarming spread of COVID-19, and what this could mean for our two-county region, Inland Empire Community Foundation is accepting donations to assist local nonprofit organizations working to respond to this public health crisis.

IECF believes the role of philanthropy today is making sure the safety net we have in our communities stays strong – that the most vulnerable and isolated among us can receive assistance. As hard as illness and disasters can be, imagine it without the money, housing, health care, and food many of us take for granted.

Please consider a gift to ensure that our most vulnerable residents will receive the resources and support they need at this challenging time.

To support local efforts in our region, Inland Empire Community Foundation is accepting online donations to:
Support the IE COVID-19 Resilience Fund

Grants will be made to organizations in each county assisting those impacted by job loss or facing homelessness because of COVID-19.

Between May and July, $704,000 in grants have been made to the following organizations:
