CourseStorm Announces COVID-19 Education Relief Fund
From our founding, CourseStorm has prided itself on being a committed partner with each program we’ve served. As we witness the unprecedented effect the COVID-19 situation is having on educational providers across the nation, our team has been working around the clock to identify ways we can help our customers through this difficult time.
The vast majority of our customers are small, non-profit organizations that lack the financial cushioning of larger institutions and are, therefore, feeling a disproportionate impact on their programs. We have been awed by the creativity and determination of our customers to adapt to the situation rapidly, but we’re also keenly aware that more help is needed.
In honor of that spirit, CourseStorm has created the COVID-19 Education Relief Fund to help alleviate economic injury related to the disruption of our customers’ programming.
Through this fund, we will distribute up to $10,000 among CourseStorm programs that have experienced extreme financial hardship due to COVID-19. The goal of this effort is to make the greatest impact we can for those programs with the most need.
Applications for the Relief Fund will open on April 3rd, and decisions are expected to be made the week of April 27th. Customers should expect to receive additional information with instructions and a link to the application form on April 3rd, 2020.
Please know that our entire team is here to support you during this time and want to help strengthen your program so that it comes out the other side stronger than ever.
