The CORONA Relief Fund
for the benefit of individuals and families who have experienced job loss as a result of COVID-19
After consultations with our partner social workers in agencies around the country, Ten Gav has established the CORONA Relief Fund to deal with extraordinary circumstances created by the impact of the coronavirus.
Ten Gav is accepting applications from social service agencies with whom we have a working relationship for extraordinary items, including rent payment, that their clients are not able to pay as a result of job loss in the family. Although Ten Gav does not normally accept requests for ongoing recurring expenses, this fund will provide such assistance. All other requirements of Ten Gav, including that no single request exceed $1500 / 5500 NIS, that all requests be accompanied by a full social services report, and that payments will be made directly to the landlord or supplier, as the case may be, continue to be in effect. The CORONA Relief Fund will function as a temporary fund until the end of December 2020.
In addition, as vast numbers of classroom hours have been converted to online learning, and we anticipate many additional requests for computers, the CORONA Relief Fund will be used to purchase computers for families currently unable to provide their children with a home computer or laptop for their learning use.
