Nantahala Health Foundation (NHF) has announced that it is launching the COVID-19 Impact Recovery Fund campaign. The purpose of this campaign is to match charitable donations dollar for dollar up to $100,000 in order to prepare for a post-COVID future.
In a press release, NHF writes, "The immediate threat has always been that the virus would spread and create pressures on our communities’ limited healthcare systems. Beyond that, however, we anticipate dramatic short- and long-term effects on our region’s education systems, workforce and local economies. By growing our resources and matching donations from the public, we will be better equipped to respond quickly and sustain that response over the duration of the recovery."
