In response to COVID-19 and the diversifications it requires, EPNRC established the EP Nonprofit Reduction Fund in early April 2020 for disbursement inside Estes Park. This fund supported any operational want that contributed to the execution of a vital service and/or fundamental want in our neighborhood.
COVID shut down in-person fundraising occasions and made it troublesome for some nonprofits to supply providers. Virtually half of all cash awarded by the Reduction Fund helped offset nonprofits’ lack of earnings. Different funds supported fundamental wants of the neighborhood (meals, showers, groceries, gasoline playing cards); expertise and gear that enhanced providers (a brand new telephone line at Crossroads, web connection and upgrades for college students, distant entry for disaster supporters); help of revolutionary programming (the Estes Valley Land Belief initiated a Conservation Corps that awarded cash to neighborhood members in trade for conservation work); and direct help to Latinx households in want.
EPNRC want to say “Thanks” once more to the beneficiant people who allowed us to say YES to the wants of our area people. We might additionally prefer to acknowledge the Village Thrift Store for his or her donation to help nonprofit providers. Each particular person who bought T-shirts by the EPNRC Market additionally helped make this occur.
As COVID continues, sustaining lack of earnings—or a discount in earnings—has elevated the necessity for hire and utilities help. Crossroads Ministry has obtained requests for over $35,000 in hire help within the month of November alone (previous to Thanksgiving). EPNRC is happy to supply the steadiness of the Nonprofit Reduction Fund, $13,500, to Crossroads Ministry in an effort to answer this want.
