Like many organizations and companies around the world, Missouri Foundation for Health has been monitoring COVID-19, paying close attention to its impact on our work, staff, and organizational activities. In thinking about what’s best for the Foundation, our people, and our partners and grantees, we’ve decided to alter a few operational things until further notice.
- Beginning on March 18, the Foundation’s offices are closed through at least April 30, and all employees will be working remotely.
- The Foundation’s convening space is also closed, and any meetings scheduled in that space are cancelled through the end of April.
- Individual meetings with MFH staff scheduled in our offices will now be conducted remotely via telephone or Zoom videoconference.
- Foundation staff will also not be traveling for work until further notice.
We want to assure you that the steps we’ve taken to practice physical distancing will not affect current funding programs or goals in any way. We understand that many of you are facing challenges as you strive to continue service delivery to communities throughout Missouri during this critical time. We encourage everyone to practice physical distancing, which helps to prevent the spread of the virus in our communities. This practice has been proven to minimize social and economic impacts to the communities and populations we care about most.
