The Fund for Women and Girls has donated $50,000 to the Princeton Area Community Foundation COVID-19 Relief & Recovery Fund to address the most urgent needs in greater Mercer County.
With this donation, the Fund for Women and Girls joins a coalition of funders that has raised more than $2.1 million for the Princeton Area Community Foundation COVID-19 Relief & Recovery Fund to support local nonprofits serving our community.
“We are proud to be partnering with the Community Foundation to provide rapid, emergency support to organizations serving vulnerable women and children during the unprecedented COVID-19 crisis,” Cathy Schaeder Batterman, Fund for Women and Girls co-chair, said in a prepared statement.
A diverse group of individual philanthropists who come together, identify organizations, raise funds, and donate to make a difference, the Fund for Women and Girls was founded in 1998. Last year, the fund awarded nearly $200,000 to local nonprofits.
The fund currently focuses on low-income families, single mothers, and their children facing food insecurity, uncertain healthcare, and lost income intensified by the COVID-19 crisis, according to the statement.
“We can make a greater impact on our community when we give together,” Karen Collias, Fund for Women and Girls co-chair, said in the statement.
