COVID-19 Emergency Grants Available

CHF ends Covid 19 Emergency Grants for 2020:

Curry Health Foundation has worked hard to fund our health partners in Curry County with our first ever Covid 19 Emergency Grants, a separate grant from our regular yearly grant cycle.
Since May this year, as Covid 19 was affecting the residents of Curry County due to restrictions and social distancing, Curry Health Network has given out over $7,000 in small grants to seven heatlth agencies to help these nonprofits assist those people most impacted.
You may have been one of those who received packaged meals from the Gold Beach Community Center or your child was given snack and activity bags from the Chetco Library to help them through the isolation in Brookings, or you may have a relative working at one of the nonprofits to whom we granted funds for PPE (personal protection equipment, like masks).
We are proud to partner with these tireless agencies who selflessly care for and support our most vulnerable friends and neighbors. CHF will continue to monitor the heatlh needs in Curry County and respond as much as possible to continue increasing positive health outcomes for you and your family. Thank you for your support!


If your non-profit has been affected by the COVID 19 virus response, we have small grants available for you.  Thanks to a generous grant from the Marie Lamfrom Charitable Trust and numerous other donors, we have grants of up to $1,500 to help deal with the impacts of the pandemic.

These are quick response grants.  To apply, please send a narrative describing how your organization has been impacted.  Include the following in your narrative:

  • A description of the program for which you are requesting funds and why it is vital at this time;
  • What population is served by the program;
  • How this program has been affected by the virus including the difference in service numbers from last year and from the months before March, 2020 when sequestering became mandatory;
  • Your budget for this program, other funders you may be using and how the money from Curry Health Foundation will be spent;
  • If this is a new program generated entirely by the Covid 19 crisis, please describe why it is necessary now;
  • Other organizations with which you are partnering to make this a success.

Send this narrative along with your budget to for review.  We reserve the right to ask for more information about the program as needed by the review board.  These emergency requests may be approved within two weeks.

We hope everyone is staying safe and thank you and our partner organizations for helping all our vulnerable neighbors and friends.
