Dear Foundation Partners,

With the rapid spread of COVID-19, the Bruening Foundation’s staff is now working remotely; however, our grantmaking cycles and work will not be interrupted at this time. We want to assure those organizations with current grants that we recognize this developing situation may affect your ability to implement programming as you had planned. We want to offer you flexibility during this time. You need not be concerned about programmatic progress that may be delayed or halted during this crisis.

We are also working with other funders in our community to identify ways we can support the nonprofit sector to address the unanticipated needs of this crisis.
Should you have any pressing questions or concerns regarding your grant, please email your office contact. Otherwise, please know that we understand you are working hard to manage the significant challenges within your organizations.

Thank you for all that you do. Please stay safe and healthy.

Diane Downing, Chair of Distribution Committee
The Bruening Foundation
