Lake County Community Crisis Relief Fund
The Lake County Community Crisis Relief Fund is designed to respond to critical needs that will arise in Lake County as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and also to serve as a permanent countywide funding resource in times of future emergencies. The fund will provide our Lake County nonprofit health and human service providers with quick and well-coordinated funding support to alleviate unanticipated financial hardship that may arise in the event of a community or countywide emergency—both now in the face of the COVID-19 crisis and well into the future as other emergencies arise. Your generous donation will ensure that our nonprofit partners have the resources they need to quickly respond to the urgent needs our most vulnerable Lake County neighbors are facing.
