COVID-19 Resources

The Scott County Community Foundation is carefully monitoring news related to the coronavirus (COVID-19) global pandemic. The health and well-being of our community, including our donors, grantees, volunteers, staff, and vendors is a top priority. Our staff will continue to work and serve our community. We have also re-opened our Disaster Relief Fund for COVID-19 relief. There will be no fees charged to this fund.
