COVID-19 Information

A Message From Linda Speed, President and CEO

Dear Friends,

Our thoughts go out to all of the individuals, families, businesses and communities that have been impacted by COVID-19 (Coronavirus). I wanted to make you aware that the Community Foundation of Southern Indiana is closely monitoring the situation and its effect on our region.

While we continue to work remotely, the Community Foundation’s staff is rotating time in the office to ensure that we are open every day to serve you and our community. We understand this is a difficult time and hope you’ll use the resources available on our website (see below), contact us via email, or leave a voicemail for the appropriate staff person and we will return your message at our earliest convenience.

The Community Foundation has also opened our Disaster Relief Fund to provide for community needs which arise from COVID-19. 100% of the donations will be used to address community needs related to this pandemic. If you want to help you can make a gift to the fund via the giving page on our website or by recommending a grant from your donor advised fund. Read this press release for more information.

It is our promise to serve as this community’s philanthropic partner, resource and steward. That promise continues to apply, especially during times like these. Over the next several weeks, CFSI will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates, when necessary, on our website and social media platforms.

If you have any questions or concerns, please call us at 812-948-4662.

Please continue to check here for updates.
