In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Community Foundation of Snohomish County (CFSC) launched a philanthropic fund specific to response efforts in Snohomish County. On March 18, by Res. 20-07, the Board of Health unanimously approved the Health District partnering with the Community Foundation of Snohomish County to establish a Coronavirus Response Fund for Snohomish County (Exhibit A).
Grants awarded are to be flexibly used in response to the coronavirus. Granting to the community will be made as funds are available, with 20% set aside for Snohomish Health District and 80% toward safety-net services.
On March 30, a check for $109,341 was received from CFSC Coronavirus Response Fund. These dollars are intended to be used for such services and supplies, including but not limited to, current and future mobile testing rental needs, laptops, and translation services, food at testing sites and emergency operations for volunteers, staff, nurses, and law enforcement related to the COVID-19 pandemic. An additional $55,884 is pending award to the Health District. Res. 20-10 (Exhibit B) allows the Health District to accept these and any future funds granted through the CFSC Coronavirus Response Fund.
Awards as of April 2, are available on https://www.cf-sc.org/coronavirus-response-fund/grants-funded/.
All individual donations to this fund will be collected on the Coronavirus Response Fund donation page at https://www.cf-sc.org/coronavirus-response-fund/.
