Welcome from Our President
The year 2020 will be written about in history books as one of the most unusual and difficult periods in modern history. The COVID-19 pandemic has had devastating effects on our health, our economy, our schools, our supply chains and so much more. The Greater Chesapeake Charitable Foundation is committed to helping our communities heal. That’s why we plan to support relief efforts across all sectors on both an individual and organizational level. Throughout the year, we will share additional details around specific COVID-19 relief efforts we plan to support. If you would like to bring a particular cause to our attention for consideration, please contact us.
COVID Relief Partners
GCCF Partners with Kooper’s Tavern to Donate Meals to Local Healthcare Workers
The COVID-19 pandemic has made us all adapt to a new normal. While most of us are doing our part by staying home and practicing social distancing, our nation’s healthcare workers continue to go to work every day to keep the rest of us healthy and safe. GCCF is focused on supporting those on the front lines of this crisis. We are proud to partner with Kooper’s Tavern to donate over $4,200 in meals to local healthcare workers. Together, we have delivered more than 400 meals to various units at Baltimore area hospitals, including Johns Hopkins, MedStar Health System, and LifeBridge Health.
Help Raise Critical Funds for the Center for Adoption Support and Education
In FY20 the Greater Chesapeake Charitable Foundation selected “children” as our theme and partnered with the Center for Adoption Support and Education (C.A.S.E.). Due to the pandemic, the children and the adoptive, foster and kinship families C.A.S.E. serves need our help now more than ever.
The children C.A.S.E. supports are already fragile – trying to heal from so much adversity, loss and trauma. C.A.S.E.’s CEO, Debbie Riley, reports, “I’m seeing the most dramatic spike in severe symptoms in my entire career as a therapist. Anxiety and depression magnified by the pandemic. Children running away, thoughts of self-harm, suicide attempts, some needing to be hospitalized. The needs are growing daily with more families reaching out for help than ever before, many now asking for financial assistance.”
You can make a real difference in the lives of these children and families by making a donation in any amount. Your gift to C.A.S.E. goes even further thanks to the Carol M. Jacobsohn Foundation. If C.A.S.E. raises $100,000 by September 15, the Jacobsohn Foundation will grant an additional $50,000 to help families in financial need pay for therapy.
