April 21st, 2020

The Gladwin County Community Foundation (GCCF) is gathering information from community partners, organizations, and individuals to best understand how to help Gladwin County during this unprecedented time, and have established a new fund; the COVID-19 Response Fund

“The Gladwin County Community Foundation is committed to serving individuals and organizations affected by COVID-19 in the Gladwin community,” said Pamela Cingano, Vice Chair of the Gladwin County Community Foundation. “We are happy to make an impact on the livelihood of our neighbors in need.”

In addition, recently the Gladwin County Community Foundation gave $10,000 in grant funds to the Michigan Small Business Relief Program through the Gladwin Economic Development Corporation. The funding was allotted to assist with small business grants to businesses located within Gladwin County.

“There are still a lot of unknowns with COVID-19,” said Cingano. “What we do know is that GCCF will be there to support Gladwin County.”
