More COVID Money for Non-Profits; Crisis Fund Tops $4.8 million

United Way

Nearly a half million dollars in more crisis relief money is on the way to non-profits in southwestern Indiana. 

The COVID-19 Crisis Response Fund of the Greater Evansville Region has awarded more than $454,000 in two rounds of allocations to 25 nonprofit agencies.

In a release from the Welborn Baptist Foundation, rounds two and three will assist with funding operations, food, and financial needs.

The foundation said applications were approved for each of the five counties in the fund’s region: Gibson, Posey, Spencer, Vanderburgh, and Warrick.

Some of the largest recipients were the Evansville Salvation Army, Albion Fellows Bacon Center, Catholic Charities, Evansville Christian Life Center, Family Matters of Posey County, and the Princeton Salvation Army.

The Response Fund has raised more than $4.8 million, which includes a sponsored project of Indiana United Ways, with money provided by the Lilly Endowment.

The target for the fund is $6 million, but that number will depend on the needs of the community as time goes on.

Donations to the fund can be made by credit card at covidresponsefund.com.

Cash and Check donations are accepted at all Old National Bank and Heritage Federal Credit Union branches.
