Together We Can Make a Difference!
The COVID-19 Tustin Response Fund is an essential community resource. It was designed to rapidly distribute funds where they can have the greatest impact and then to support our community as we recover and rebuild. Even before the pandemic hit our community, the Tustin Community Foundation began working closely with the City of Tustin and nonprofit organizations on the front line of the local response. The Foundation has played a critical role in understanding specific issues faced by our community.
As the local impact of the pandemic continues to unfold, our community’s desire to help continues to be inspiring. TCF thanks the many donors who have generously Helped Us Help Others.
Tax-deductible contributions to the COVID-19 Local Response Fund may be made online here or by check made payable to the
Tustin Community Foundation P.O. Box 362, Tustin, CA 92781.
100% of your donation will be used to support our community members in need.
Donations have been used with maximum efficiency and where they would make the most impact. Food insecurity was the #1 issue in our community during the first stage of COVID-19. The need for face masks, personal protection equipment (PPE) and supplies quickly followed. Donations purchased COVID anti-body testing kits and, most recently, outdoor heaters to warm a vaccination waiting area. In November, the Foundation awarded grants to support area nonprofits as they increased and adapted their programs to meet new needs.
As the needs continue to change in the community, so will the direction of our donations.
Many local Tustin area seniors do not have family or friends to depend on for regular meal support. Last April, the Tustin Community Foundation kicked off, FRIENDS FEEDING SENIORS, a program to deliver nutritious weekend meals to vulnerable seniors. Unfortunately, the need continues today so if you would like to support this program specifically, please check the box when you complete your donation.
Thank you for helping TCF help our Tustin community through the ever-changing months ahead. Thank you for caring about our community!
