COVID-19 Response

Blue Meridian continues to deploy capital to organizations focused on supporting vulnerable communities and the children and families disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our Efforts

COVID-19 has caused immense, disproportionate harm to the most vulnerable people in the US. Blue Meridian’s COVID-19 Response portfolio provides funding to organizations serving the hardest-hit communities.

Initially, we funded organizations that were providing essential support to individuals and families experiencing acute economic fallout as a result of the pandemic—from job loss to lack of affordable housing. These COVID-19 Emergency Relief investments supported direct cash assistance and improved access to public benefits.

The pandemic has also profoundly disrupted the education system, disconnecting millions of students from school. Our COVID-19 Education Recovery investments will provide needed capital and technical assistance to education innovators who are successfully re-engaging children and families in school.

Our Response

Our approach is guided by three principles: act now, partner with others, and trust social sector leaders and community members to know what meets their needs. We have invested in 35+ organizations helping the hardest-hit populations, providing immediate relief, while working toward a long-term, equitable recovery in the communities they serve.
