Mary McClellan Foundation’s Response to Coronavirus (COVID-19)

 

Supporting the work of health care providers in the towns serviced by the former Mary McClellan Hospital is even more critical at this historic time. The Mary McClellan Foundation (MMF) Board is responding in three ways:

(1) Current Grantees: To the extent that current grantees have not already expended those grant monies from the 2019 grant cycle, you may apply those monies to new expenses or operating deficits directly incurred as a result of the current COVID-19 crisis with one proviso. Grantees may not use those grant monies for expenses that are otherwise reimbursable under the recently passed Federal CARES Act (e.g. payroll expenses) since MMF assumes organizations will be seeking those reimbursements from the Federal government. A letter with further instructions about reporting has been sent to your grant contact.

(2) In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will consider requests for grants that relate to the COVID 19 crisis (up to a maximum of $20,000 per grantee applicant). Grantees may not use those grant monies for expenses that are otherwise reimbursable under the recently passed Federal CARES Act (e.g. payroll expenses) since MMF assumes organizations will be seeking those reimbursements from the Federal government. 

(3) Grant Awards to Rescue Squads: MMF is pleased to announce a grant award of $40,000 to be divided equally among the Cambridge Valley Rescue Squad, the Salem Rescue Squad, the Easton-Greenwich Rescue Squad, and the Town of Hoosick Rescue Squad for the purpose of addressing increased operating expenses and deficits directly incurred as a result of the COVID 19 crisis.
