Licking County Foundation continues to monitor developments in our community related to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak. Social distancing - also called physical distancing - is believed to be the most effective means of slowing the spread and reducing the impact of COVID-19. Our focus remains on ensuring the safety and health of our staff, volunteers, committee members and the community. To that end, we are following the guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC)Ohio Department of Health (ODH) and the Licking County Health Department regarding physical distancing, restricted travel, and public events.

Foundation staff are working remotely until further notice, but we will continue to conduct business during this time. Email is the best way to reach us, but you may also call our direct lines and your message will be delivered to us via email. Visit our staff directory here for contact information.

We’ve also taken the additional precautionary steps:

  • We have postponed all events and previously scheduled meetings.
  • We have suspended visitors to our office.
  • Essential meetings will be held via telephone or Zoom when possible; our office will contact participants about arrangements should this be necessary.
  • We will remain in contact with our grant partners and other community organizations to better understand the urgent needs and emerging concerns in the community.

Further, Licking County Foundation encourages your support of the Licking County COVID-19 Relief Fund. Click here to read more about this community-wide effort and find out how you can help.
