The latest news and views from Community Foundation For Merseyside
As a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic and repeated lockdowns, many people in the Liverpool City Region have been seriously impacted, including losing their source of income, a reduction in earnings, the ability to see loved ones withdrawn, and some having access to vital services significantly reduced.
This report outlines the Liverpool City Region response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the launch of the LCR Cares COVID-19 Community Support Fund, including the coordination of corporate donors, public donations and funders such as the National Emergencies Trust.
Community Foundations for Lancashire and Merseyside has welcomed on board two new Trustees to support its legacy of facilitating structured charitable giving.
The Community Foundation for Merseyside recognises that the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak is an exceptional event that will have an impact on the many local charities, community groups and projects we support. We would like to reassure our donors, grantees, partners and friends that we are doing – and will continue to do – everything we can to support the sector throughout this period.
For a number of years I have donated through my local community foundation in Merseyside to directly support those causes closest to my heart. We need more people and businesses to get involved with their local Community Foundation, such as the ones for Lancashire and Merseyside, to benefit from their experience and local knowledge to make sure any donation delivers the greatest benefit to our communities.
