Genesis Fund and COVID-19

Dear Friends and Partners,

As developments regarding the COVID-19 pandemic rapidly evolve, we want you to know that as a staff here at the Genesis Fund, we are closely monitoring the situation to gauge its impacts here in our office and beyond. Our top priority is the health and well-being of our staff, borrowers, partners, and fellow community members. We are taking measures, recommended by the CDC and the State of Maine, to help slow the spread of the pandemic and to look out for our staff and community partners.

We are currently primarily working remotely, but will 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).

We understand that as the effects of this pandemic ripple out to your organizations, your communities and your families, you are likely facing challenges and disruptions in your own lives and workplaces as well. 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.

Please 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
