The Genesis Fund is currently operating with a hybrid model.

Dear Friends and Partners,

As developments regarding the COVID-19 pandemic continue to evolve, we want you to know that as a staff here at the Genesis Fund, our top priority is the health and well-being of our staff, borrowers, partners, and fellow community members. We are continuing with several health & safety protocols in our office space, including limiting indoor meetings and maintaining a mask policy in our offices.

We are currently operating with a hybrid model, with some employees working remotely, and others working regular in-office hours. However, we will all continue to be available during usual business hours by email and reachable by phone at 207.844.2035 (each staff member will have contact information on their voicemail messages).

Please know that the Genesis Fund remains a resource for you. If there is a way we can be of assistance, please know that we want to hear from you. I encourage you to reach out if you have questions, or if we can offer assistance during this unpredictable and challenging time.

We hope that you are staying safe and taking care of yourselves and your communities.

Be well,

Liza Fleming-Ives
Executive Director
