Elgin Covid Response Fund

Elgin Covid Response Fund

The Elgin Covid Response Fund (ECRF) details have been announced by the City of Elgin and local and regional funders. From June 1, eligible nonprofit organizations can go to www.cffrv.gives/elgin-apply to apply online. The deadline for the application submission is June 17. Applicants will be notified of grant decisions the week of July 8.

Funds will be dispersed to organizations that are helping Elgin residents during these uncertain times. About $150,000 is seeding to the funds. The City of Elgin has also contributed $50,000. You can make online donations through www.cffrv.gives/elgin-covid.

“These are extraordinary times that require extraordinary efforts. That is why the Seigle Family Foundation is proud to be a part of this steering committee that consists of several of the family and private foundations who have been committed to Elgin long before the pandemic and will be committed long after,” explains Mark Seigle. “We are asking our fellow Elginites to donate to this important fund. Any contribution will be a contribution that goes back into our community, into the hands of our neighbors in need.”

Those organizations are eligible that are located in the greater Elgin area and have a demonstrated history serving residents of the city of Elgin. Organizations and agencies that have not served Elgin in the past are not eligible for ECRF. ECRF is a $500-$7,500 grant restricted. It is restricted specifically for providing direct financial assistance to individuals and families facing urgent, financial need as a result of the pandemic.

ECRF grants can be applied by the 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations to administer the funds to individuals and families in need. The following partners’ leadership created the ECRF fund: the City of Elgin, United Way Metro Chicago (formally United Way of Elgin), Grand Victoria Foundation, Seigle Family Foundation, Kaptain Family Trust, Wisdom Family Foundation and Hoffer Family Foundation.
