Ohio Foundation Offers $20K
In A Dollar-For-Dollar Match
COOPERSTOWN – By yesterday afternoon, less than 72 hours after the Community Foundation of Otsego County formally announced the COVID-19 Relief & Recovery Fund, community members sent in checks and used credit card payments that succeeded in meeting the $30,000 challenge match.
“Good news,” said Harry Levine, foundation board chairman, in announcing the response, adding, “We now have $80,000 to distribute in awards.”
There’s more good news, said Levine: In response to this first challenge, the Robert and Esther Black Family Foundation and its related fund at the Richland County (Ohio) Foundation have donated $20,000 for another $1 for $1 challenge.
“Let’s qualify for this second grant by expanding the community’s support of the COVID Fund,” said Levine. “Please contact your friends, your neighbors, your families and invite them to join us.”
