Emergency Relief Fund

The effects of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) are being felt across north Alabama, and many local nonprofit agencies that serve our communities are struggling right now. We want to thank the more than 450 individuals and families who have donated amounts from $5 to $5,000, and the corporate donors who "took 5 further" to donate amounts of $5,000 and more, to the Community Foundation's Emergency Relief Fund. This fund supports organizations in the Greater Huntsville area who are providing basic needs and/or health and wellness relief efforts related to the COVID-19 situation. 100% of the money donated goes directly to local agencies helping those impacted the most. We believe that together we are stronger and more effective than any individual, company, or organization can be on its own.

Our community has responded in this time of need with incredible generosity. However, the financial needs of the nonprofits serving our community during the time of crisis is tremendous. For those that wish to donate, please consider the three methods of giving detailed below.

Donate to the Emergency Relief Fund via credit card.
