The VF Foundation, a private grantmaking organization funded by the VF Corporation, has announced that it will be donating $1.5 million USD to coronavirus relief efforts. In addition to its contribution, the VF Foundation is partnering up with VF’s portfolio of brands – The North Face, Vans, Timberland, Dickies and more – to initiate a two-for-one community match campaign, which will include an additional $500,000 USD. Steve Rendle, Chairman, President and CEO of VF Corporation said in a press release:

“Helping others during times of need is a responsibility we all share, and this is especially true right now as our global community comes together to battle the COVID-19 pandemic. With the contribution from the VF Foundation and the community matching campaign with our employees and consumers alike, we hope to do our part in addressing this global public health crisis.”

VF’s $1.5 million USD contribution will go to organizations like the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund, the CDC Foundation Emergency Response Fund and the Colorado COVID-19 Relief Fund. Money raised through the community challenge grant will go to GlobalGiving, the grantmaking partner of The VF Foundation.
