Monroeville Foundation Launches Emergency Relief Fund

The Monroeville Foundation

EXCERPT FROM  TRIBLIVE 5/5/20

A Monroeville charitable organization was forced to cancel its largest annual fundraiser, so organizers launched a campaign to fund local efforts during the covid-19 pandemic.

Monroeville Foundation has set out to raise $5,000 for an emergency relief fund. The money would be available in the form of a grant to organizations impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, said Ernie Groover, the foundation’s board president.

“It’s a modest goal,” Groover said. “But it’ll certainly be easy to give that away.”

Groover said Tuesday the foundation has raised about $400 so far.

To apply for a grant, organizations are encouraged to do so through the foundation’s website, where individuals can donate as well.

Grant applications are vetted before being submitted as a recommendation for approval by the foundation’s board, Groover said. Organizations are asked to keep their grant requests at or below $2,500. Most grants are given in the $500 range, he said.
