Twenty-one charities are doing more to deliver health services, food programs, learning resources, and emergency financial help, thanks to underwriting from the Bechtel COVID-19 Relief Fund.

Created at the start of the coronavirus pandemic, the $3 million Fund is partnering with nonprofits to address urgent human needs in the company’s project and office communities.

“Our first round of gifts totaled $770,000 and went to 21 charities in 2 countries,” says LeeAnne Lang of Bechtel Group Foundation, which provided the funds for the special giving program. “By September, we’ll have distributed a second and final round of gifts in partnership with GlobalGiving, the first and largest crowdfunding community to connect nonprofits, companies, and donors worldwide.”
