OUR APPROACH DURING THIS TIME

The Otto Schoitz Foundation acknowledges that all community nonprofit organizations are working to address pressing and emerging needs during these unprecedented times. In support of their invaluable response and recovery work, the Otto Schoitz Foundation has helped launch the Black Hawk County COVID-19 Cooperative Disaster Response Fund, released restrictions on nearly $375,000 in previously awarded funds, and provided additional emergency funds directly to nonprofit partners. Further, the newly-opened Fall 2020 cycle will prioritize COVID-19 recovery efforts for community nonprofit organizations providing basic needs and other supportive services to vulnerable populations. Requests from nonprofit organizations with 500 or less employees will be prioritized as will requests for operating and programmatic support over capital proposals.

More information on how to apply for the Fall 2020 cycle, is found here.
