CLEVELAND — Cleveland Browns owners Jimmy and Dee Haslam pledged $1.5 million to COVID-19 relief funds across the state of Ohio, according to the team.

The Haslams, through their Haslam 3 Foundation, pledged $1 million to the Greater Cleveland COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund and another $500,000 to the Columbus Foundation’s Emergency Response Fund, the team said.

Both funds assist non-profit organizations in Ohio that are responding to the pandemic. The Greater Cleveland COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund helps public health officials and provides grants to organizations in Cuyahoga, Geauga and Lake counties.

"We are humbled by the tremendous work of people around the world in their efforts to help those impacted by COVID-19 and we wanted to try to positively impact those affected in our own communities of Cleveland and Columbus," Dee and Jimmy Haslam said in a statement. "We are grateful for the individuals who are putting others before themselves and for the sacrifices they are making."
