Survey Aims To Assess Greater Lowell Nonprofit Needs During Coronavirus Pandemic

Greater Lowell Community Foundation

LOWELL – Hoping to assist Greater Lowell nonprofits feeling the impact of COVID-19 on their organization, the Greater Lowell Community Foundation (GLCF) has created and distributed a brief survey to determine immediate critical needs as well as services and fundraising.
Working with donors and funders, GLCF has to date distributed more than $630,000 to the local community to address critical needs through the GLCF COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund.
The information culled from the Greater Lowell Nonprofit needs during COVID-19 Survey will identify additional ways GLCF can support local organizations. The survey has been shared electronically with the Greater Lowell nonprofit community, along with multiple partners from the community.
“Everyone is still trying to understand the impact of this pandemic,” said Jay Linnehan, president and CEO of the Greater Lowell Community Foundation. “Our nonprofit partners are on the frontlines and their participation in this survey is key to GLCF being able to understand the changing needs of our community.”
The survey for local nonprofits can be accessed at
The deadline to complete the survey is May 20.
