COVID-19: Changes to Our Operations

COVID-19: Changes to Our Operations

Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation must do its part to help halt the spread of the new coronavirus. We are adjusting our operations to protect the health and safety of our staff, volunteers and the wide network of generous partners through which we conduct our work.

Our office in Sheffield will be temporarily closed to the public and most of our staff will be working remotely from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays starting Monday, March 16.

The processing and distribution of grants will continue without interruption.

All meetings of grantmaking committees and other group meetings will be held virtually. BTCF staff will be in touch directly with the information our volunteers need to participate.

If you wish to reach a staff member, you can find our contact information here. All BTCF staff are accessible to respond to inquiries from donors and nonprofits and will do so promptly. Berkshire Taconic’s mission is most critical when our communities are responding to challenges and we stand ready to assist donors in connecting with nonprofits serving the most vulnerable among us.

Thank you for building a supportive and caring community we all can count on in uncertain times.
