Central Virginia COVID-19 Response Fund
This fund will be managed by the Community Foundation for a Greater Richmond, which provided seed funding of $500,000. The fund provides grants to nonprofits that are focused on immediate needs of people who are most vulnerable at this time. www.cfrichmond.org
