COVID-19 Fund Holder Update
We are working closely with Clearstead, our independent investment consultant, to monitor the COVID-19 outbreak and the stock market’s impact on our funds. Clearstead has prepared a statement for our fund holders with key facts and figures regarding the market volatility available here. As you will read, the Foundation has a diversified portfolio and utilizes a strategy focused on long-term growth. The recommendation from Clearstead, as well as our investment managers, is to stay the course with the expectation that markets will recover once the overall situation stabilizes. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to connect with staff via email during regular office hours (8 a.m.-4:30 p.m.).
Additionally, we’ve launched the Mahoning Valley Community Response Fund to provide support and resources to organizations working with those disproportionately affected by COVID-19. If you want to contribute to the Response Fund out of your CFMV fund, please complete a distribution form and email it to Tara C. Walker-Pollock at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also mail a check or donate online here.
If your organization is in need of funding, please visit our Response Fund page for more information on how to apply.
