More COVID-19 Response Fund money distributed

Nearly $200,000 in grants from the Santa Fe Community Foundation’s COVID-19 Response Fund were distributed to 23 non-profit groups this week, thanks to a large contribution from Anchorum St. Vincent.

Santa Fe-based Anchorum St. Vincent contributed $150,000 to the fund. That money was distributed to Communities in Schools, Esperanza Shelter, The Food Depot, Interfaith Community Shelter, Kitchen’s Angels, La Familia Medical Center, St. Elizabeth Shelter, Santa Fe Public Schools’ Adelante Program, Solace Crisis Treatment Center, United Way of Santa Fe County, and Youth Shelter & Family Services.

Meanwhile, the Santa Fe Community Foundation, distributed a total of $57,900 to the Adelante Program, Bernal Community Cener, BioLaw Ethics Institute and Alzeimer’s Café, Habitat for Humanity of Española Valley and Los Alamos, Inc., Kids Counseling Inc., Many Mothers, New Mexico Farmers Marketing Association, North American Fabrication Alliance, Santa Fe Farmers’ Market Institute, The Sky Center, Vegas Vagabonds, Villages of Santa Fe, Youth Shelter & Family Services, and Youthworks.

“The awards made this week speak to the power of collaboration among philanthropy in meeting the urgent needs in our communities,” Bill Smith, president and CEO of the Santa Fe community Foundation, said in a statement. “This week’s grantees are on the front lines meeting the food and health needs in our communities, and at the same time, are working to build bridges that empower individuals, families, farmers, and fabricators of personal protection equipment (PPE) among other critical efforts.”

This is the third distribution of money from SFCF’s COVID-19 Response Fund. Smith previously told the Journal that the initial grants would go to organizations that addressed food and health issues.

A Friday news release says that the response fund would now direct funding to groups that deal with food security, economic insecurity, and facilitation of education.

Altogether, nearly $320,000 have been distributed to 44 organizations through the COVID-19 Response Fund in the past three weeks, according to a news release. The funds are being distributed to non-profit groups in Mora, Rio Arriba, San Miguel and Santa Fe counties.
