Members funding the COVID-19 crisis in Ohio: Westfield
Ohio funders are stepping up to support their communities as they face COVID-19 impacts. For the next several weeks, we’ll spotlight these efforts here and host a series of calls to help our members stay abreast of evolving issues, connect and learn from one another. Special thanks to Westfield for sponsoring these calls that will occur on April 6, April 15, April 24, May 4 and May 14.
Westfield began focusing on disaster philanthropy five years ago as it reflects the work they do every day as a property and casualty insurance company. While giving for relief increases during disaster, recovery and preparedness is underfunded and therefore where Westfield focuses.
Westfield has initially funded local hunger relief in $15,000 to Feeding Medina County; $50,000 to Feeding America; and $75,000 to The Tennessee Emergency Response Fund to help people return home following Nashville's March 3 tornadoes. They will refrain from making new decisions for several weeks to determine where greatest need remains. Read more about how Ohio funders are responding to COVID-19.
We created this new e-news update for the duration of the pandemic to provide critical information to help with your efforts to address housing-related issues that are cascading effects of COVID-19.
