Responding to the Pandemic
Brandywine Health Foundation’s Healthcare and Economic Relief Fund Still Going Strong
The coronavirus has been an evolving journey and combating it is hinged upon our ongoing effort to increase vaccination rates as we fight relentless variants. At the Brandywine Health Foundation we remain committed to journey with others. Along with regional funders, our recent grant to the Philanthropy Network of Greater Philadelphia’s COIVD-19 Prevention & Education continues to educate communities across Southeastern Pennsylvania, including the Greater Coatesville Community about the importance of getting vaccinated. Minnie McNeil, Executive Director of Atkinson Center serves as the Chester County Community Investment Advisor. She has been instrumental in educating and getting over 10,000 residents in the Greater Coatesville and getting them vaccinated. This partnership project was funded from our Healthcare & Economic Relief Fund. Consider making a donation to our Relief Fund as we all continue to emerge from the coronavirus.
These grants support nonprofit organizations on the frontline serving our most vulnerable communities and residents, with a particular focus on communities of color, older residents, medically frail and or uninsured, low-income earners, people experiencing homelessness, first responders and those suffering with chronic conditions.
We proudly support our grant partners as they meet the increasing needs of our community due to the coronavirus. Our grant partners make up local and regional nonprofits across various sectors, all making life a little easier for those struggling the most. They stand on the front-lines to protect children, youth, and families.
We’ve Given Over $18.5 Million in Grants and Scholarships
This accomplishment is shared with thousands of individual donors and businesses, public and private funders, as well as our volunteers, our grantee and community partners and municipal leaders who have supported our efforts since 2001. Together, we have had a significant impact on the health and well-being of our residents in the Greater Coatesville area.
