The Community Foundation of Collier County announces the award of a $50,000 matching grant to support NCH Healthcare System’s response to the coronavirus outbreak. The matching grant and donations from individuals, totaling $181,000, will fund critical resources, equipment, and supplies, including additional ventilators, protective gear, mobile units, and more.

This grant is provided from the Community Foundation’s Collier Comes Together Fund to address the Coronavirus outbreak as effectively as possible. NCH has identified several million dollars in need for expanding and repurposing facilities to accommodate the higher patient volume, create specialized isolation areas and expand laboratory space.
