The Silicon Valley Community Foundation is leading an effort with other Bay Area philanthropic partners on a regional response to this public health crisis.
The COVID-19 Regional Nonprofit Emergency Fund will will be used to provide flexible operating support grants to nonprofit organizations that SVCF has pre-qualified to provide emergency-related services: food, shelter, health and mental health services to affected communities.
Applications are now open, with a maximum request of $50,000 per applicant. If you have any questions related to eligibility or the grant application process, please email NPemergencyfund@siliconvalleycf.org.
The COVID-19 pandemic is already hurting San José’s residents, businesses, and community-based organizations. Particularly hard hit are those families and individuals who can least afford a medical or financial crisis, small businesses whose revenues have fallen off, and nonprofits that are seeing an increased need for services or have had to cancel arts, cultural, or fundraising events.
The Silicon Valley Strong Fund – a partnership between local cities and the Silicon Valley Community Foundation – will work to address these impacts.
The SVO is partnering with the local non-profit community, which is looking for businesses and individuals to donate desperately needed supplies to them so that they can provide essential services to our most vulnerable neighbors, e.g. food distribution, shelters, etc.

Silicon Valley Strong is calling on the community to lend a caring hand to people in need. Recovery and assistance have no borders. While San José will take point on organizing food distribution, the principles of Silicon Valley Strong are very simple: We are going to move fast, we will act comprehensively countywide, and we will act as one team.
This critical, regional effort seeks volunteers to ensure food security for our most vulnerable residents among the 1.9M people in this County. We will focus our delivery efforts primarily on seniors and the medically vulnerable who are urged to self-isolate for their own safety.
