COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS) UPDATE

The mission of the Rob Benzon Foundation is to provide unexpected help and hope to individuals in the San Diego community who are suffering from a personal catastrophic event not of their making who are in need of emergency support for actual expenses. The current Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic fall outside of our mission.

We recognize that with the constantly changing COVID-19 situation in our community and around the world, this is an unprecedented time for everyone — a time that, for many, is filled with uncertainty.

Our hearts and thoughts go out to each and every one of you as we navigate through these unprecedented times.
