Spiritus Relief: Breathing Life into the COVID-19 Crisis

In times of crisis, the NCF South Florida team often activates funds to support those most impacted. We’ve heard many stories of people suffering from poor health, lost jobs, financial and emotional strain – the list goes on – all as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. In dark hours like these, we rely on our Gospel Patrons – our NCFSF givers – to be the hope and light of the world.

“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden…let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” –Matthew 5:14-16 (ESV)

Thanks to the unique ecosystem we’ve developed with Church UnitedLifework Leadership and Ministry Ventures, our team has been able to hear of and respond to needs both within our community and abroad. The Spiritus Relief Fund is just one of the results of the strength of this network – through this fund, givers have the opportunity to support victims of the coronavirus pandemic, knowing that, through our community connections, we’re investing these contributions to worthy charities on the front lines of providing relief.

If you feel burdened by those hurting as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and have the means to offer financial support, we want to make you aware of a resource to easily offer provide relief: The Spiritus Relief Fund. Through this fund, it’s easy to maximize your giving with the assurance of knowing that 100% of your contribution will go directly to support those in most need.
