The Charlottesville Area Community Foundation is pleased to announce a contribution exceeding $1 million from local investment firm Quad-C Management, Inc., to the Community Emergency Response Fund. The fund was established to provide flexible resources to households and organizations in Central Virginia helping to alleviate the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The crisis we’re facing is unprecedented,” Brennan Gould, president and CEO of the Community Foundation, said. “We’re lucky to live in a community where companies like Quad-C recognize the challenge and so generously contribute to helping their neighbors in need.”
The Community Emergency Response Fund has made more than $200,000 in grants to nonprofits, and it has provided $1.6 million to the Community Resource Helpline, which allows households to request quick, targeted, and discreet financial assistance.
“We are pleased to support the Community Emergency Response Fund and hope that this contribution will help those in the Charlottesville area most impacted by the COVID-19 crisis,” said Tom Hickey, a Quad-C partner speaking on behalf of all of the partners of Quad-C, “We are very fortunate as a community to have the dedicated people of the Community Foundation who are constantly in contact with area families and nonprofit organizations around Charlottesville to assess needs and provide direct assistance.”
