Horizon Funds NKY Coronavirus Relief Fund

St. Elizabeth has partnered with Horizon Community Funds of Northern Kentucky to launch the NKY Coronavirus Relief Fund, providing flexible financial assistance to nonprofits in Northern Kentucky experiencing increased demand for resources in response to the COVID-19 virus in our community. To date, it has raised nearly $2M. To learn more or to make a donation, click here.

Within the Relief Fund, St. Elizabeth Foundation established the St. Elizabeth Associate Crisis Support Fund, which offers financial assistance to St. Elizabeth associates during times of unexpected personal need. The fund allows community donors the opportunity to directly support the needs of those on the front lines of this crisis. Set up as a cash fund, the donations will be immediately released to St. Elizabeth. This internal fund was established in 1990, and partnering with Horizon Funds allows it to be shared with a broader audience.

In a show of support for their colleagues, and to maximize the impact of individual gifts, the St. Elizabeth medical staff pledged to match up to $100,000 of donations to the Associate Crisis Support Fund.

    Where is the drop off for masks? Do they have to have pickets? Could you please email instructions because I cannot read the left side?
