FAQs

Get quick, helpful answers to important questions you may have about the Foundation.

I want to help. Can I give to the fund?

I want to help. Can I give to the fund? Yes. We are all in this together. It will take all of us doing our part—from practicing good hygiene, calling to check in on our elderly neighbors—to get through this stronger. We will also need resources. If you want to donate please go to the Foundation's Network for Good page, where you will find a button to donate.

Should I give to this fund instead of making donations to nonprofits? The fund will assist in efforts to help channel resources that will have the highest impact and to facilitate coordination among entities. However, it was not created to replace other forms of giving, and we encourage you to connect with and give directly to any local agency to which you are drawn. This is a critical time for many nonprofits and the broader business community.  Please continue to give to and patronize the organizations you regularly support and those that need your help at this critical time.

Among foundations in the United States, health accounts for the largest share of grant dollars awarded ($5.9 billion in 2011) according to the Foundation Center. This is followed by education ($5.2 billion); human services ($3.7 billion), and arts and culture ($2.3 billion).

Is my contribution tax deductible?
