We’re tapping the strength of collective giving to alleviate the public health and economic consequences of the coronavirus in southwest Washington.
About the SW Washington COVID Response Fund
Managed by the Community Foundation for Southwest Washington, this fund is providing flexible financial support to trusted nonprofit partners across our region who are responding to increasing needs as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
Grants are intended to sustain and develop vital community services for residents who stand to lose the most from this unfolding emergency. Our staff has identified the need for grants to organizations seeking assistance with or providing the following support:
- Housing stability efforts, services for people facing homelessness, physical and behavioral healthcare, emergency food programs and childcare support
- Community service delivery barriers, particularly around volunteer recruitment, retention and safety, and contingency planning
- Health and safety measures that range from basic cleaning and healthcare supplies to technology solutions for day-to-day operations
As of September 10, the SW Washington COVID Response Fund has expended its current funding and grant awards are paused. We will assess our capacity for additional grantmaking from the fund in the future. Please check this page for further updates or subscribe to our nonprofit newsletter.
