COVID-19  Emergency Response Fund for Berkshire County

In collaboration with Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation, Berkshire United Way and Williamstown Community Chest

The COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund for Berkshire County has distributed more than $2 million in relief grants to nonprofit organizations helping the most vulnerable populations in the county.

A report released by Berkshire United Way and Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation draws on stories and data from grantees to show that flexible resources helped them meet critical needs and achieve far-reaching impact in the community. We were proud to be partners in this work along with Williamstown Community Chest.

With support from the Massachusetts COVID-19 Relief Fund and BTCF's Neighbor-to-Neighbor Fund, together we have mobilized over $3 million locally during the pandemic. THANK YOU to all our generous donors.
