CARE TOGETHER FUND
DONATE In March, 2020, RRCF created the Covid-19 Response Fund to meet the onslaught of basic needs stemming from the pandemic. Do date, we have distributed $306,000 to 56 organizations in South King County. You can go for a list of grantees and donors to the fund.
We know that the effects of Covid-19 will be with our community for many, many months to come, and that the Black, Indigenous, and communities of color will continue to suffer the most. Therefore, we have changed the name of this fund to the CARE Together Fund. CARE stands for Communities Aligned around Racial Equity. We want to ensure that this recovery is inclusive and lifts up all of its residents. "Together" is important because it will take all of us working together to ensure our region heals and recovers.
A large majority of the grants to date have addressed food insecurity in some form. Those organizations are also often were providing rental assistance, another great need. Other grants have supported additional basic needs such as PPE and diapers. We also supported mental health and domestic violence efforts, and particular needs of refugees and immigrants.
Please consider making a contribution today.
Below is the original information on the fund.
There is no application process. A committee made up of representatives from community organizations work with RRCF's Executive Director (see list below) to identify the greatest community needs as they emerge in this rapidly changing environment. If this fund continues to grow, we will re-evaluate the need for an application process. If you have questions or would like to put your group’s name in front of the committee, email LeAnne Moss at firstname.lastname@example.org. Visit our Grants page to see the list of grantees to date.
