Much like the Chautauqua County Crisis Response Fund, the Western New York COVID-19 Community Response Fund was created by the philanthropic community to support nonprofits addressing immediate needs in response to the COVID-19 crisis throughout the eight counties of
 
Western New York. The Fund recently created a basic needs grants process to rapidly deploy resources to small urban and rural organizations ranging from $500-2,500.
