Supporting Our Community During This Time of Need

At Madison Community Foundation, we are working hard to support our community through the COVID-19 pandemic. While the disruption and hardship caused by the disease and the efforts to slow its spread are unprecedented in our times, we know that by pulling together as a community we can support each other and help protect the people and organizations most affected.

The number one question we've received since the coronavirus arrived in Wisconsin is, "How can we help?" Here are some ways you can help today with a gift or a distribution from your fund; 100% of your gift will go to support our community during this time of need.
