To better serve communities during the COVID-19 outbreak, the Vera and Joseph Dresner Foundation has realigned its grantmaking strategy for the remainder of 2020. The Foundation will prioritize supporting organizations that are addressing urgent needs of impoverished and vulnerable youth, families, and individuals. Supported programs will address basic needs, such as food access, housing insecurity, and financial assistance for essential needs and services.
Given the changes, the Foundation has closed its general grantmaking portal. Invitations will be extended to nonprofits within our geographic focus areas, who fit with the Foundation’s funding profile. Unsolicited requests will not be considered at this time.
