  ...TO COVID-19
Between March and June, 2020, there were more than 1500 cases of COVID- 19 in the North Penn region, and more than 220 deaths from the disease.
The VNA Foundation launched its North Penn Unity Grants in late-June, 2020, in an effort to bolster the incredible efforts of the nonprofit organizations serving the diverse North Penn region during the unprecedented pandemic. With rolling application deadlines and a grants budget increased by 50%, these General Operating grants are designed to provide $300,000 in timely and flexible dollars to help organizations meet the increased need for their services and/or recover lost revenue as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our North Penn Unity Grants are one example of the VNA Foundation’s active, evolving commitment to support North Penn during today’s challenges and for generations to come.

As the pandemic began to ravage the North Penn region and the quarantine impacted services, the VNA Foundation contributed $25,000 to the MontcoPA COVID-19 Response Fund as one of the Fund’s founding partners and as a member of its Advisory Committee. In an unprecedented collaborative effort, the Fund raised more than $800,000 to support hundreds of Montgomery County nonprofits in emergency grants.
