Marquette, MI – (03/25/20) – The Superior Health Foundation has unveiled the Covid-19 Pandemic Fund and Fundraiser, and SHP Executive Director Jim LaJoie joined Mark & Walt in the Morning today to explain what the program is about.
LaJoie said it was created to immediately help address the many emergent equipment and programming needs of health-centered, non-profits in the Upper Peninsula. He said the Superior Health Foundation Grants Committee and SHF Board of Directors unanimously agreed to dedicate $25,000 in SHF funding to help assist health-centered, non-profit organizations across the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
Lajoie said that in addition, SHF has created a separate charitable fund in which people and organizations from across the region are encouraged to give a tax-deductible gift to support and strengthen the fund.
The Covid-19 fund will award a maximum of $1,000 to organizations. Those applying must fill out a short online form, with emphasis on how the funding will be immediately used. Those who give a charitable gift will be afforded a drop-down menu to direct their gift to the area they choose.
