Fondo de respuesta COVID-19 de Kitsap

 

Unidad en la comunidad: el Fondo de respuesta COVID-19 de Kitsap, organizado por Kitsap Community Foundation y United Way of Kitsap, ofrece fondos flexibles a organizaciones sin fines de lucro con necesidades críticas debido a COVID-19. Responder a un virus mundial como COVID-19 es un momento estresante para todos y el estrés empeora para aquellos que ya estaban lidiando con cosas como la pobreza, el racismo o la violencia. Reconocemos los recursos de la comunidad que pueden ser de ayuda en estos tiempos difíciles. El Fondo de Respuesta COVID-19 de Kitsap ofrece fondos flexibles para organizaciones sin fines de lucro y organizaciones religiosas que sirven a los miembros de la comunidad con mayor necesidad.

Enfoque de financiación

El enfoque principal de nuestra financiación de respuesta comunitaria es proporcionar subvenciones a organizaciones para apoyar las necesidades básicas de nuestra comunidad:

  • Necesidades básicas , por ejemplo, alimentos, comidas y apoyo de recursos para servicios de salud física / mental / conductual para nuestros vecinos más vulnerables de la comunidad.

  • Necesidades de relación , por ejemplo, ofrecer formas de reducir el estrés tóxico y conectar a nuestra comunidad resiliente de una manera segura y afectuosa durante un momento en que el distanciamiento físico es nuestra mejor medida de seguridad pública.

  • Necesidades sin fines de lucro , por ejemplo, apoyo a organizaciones sin fines de lucro que corren el riesgo de fracasar si hay fondos disponibles a largo plazo.

  • Kitsap Racial Equity and Empowerment Fund , por ejemplo, apoyo a programas, servicios y actividades culturalmente relevantes en Kitsap que tienen como objetivo disminuir las inequidades causadas o exacerbadas por la crisis COVID-19 en o para comunidades de color, con énfasis en las necesidades de la comunidad negra.

Tenemos la oportunidad de volver a imaginar una nueva normalidad que mantenga la seguridad y la conexión para todos. Podemos liderar esto compartiendo nuestros recursos en colaboración con organizaciones sin fines de lucro, organizaciones religiosas, gobiernos y grupos comunitarios. Escuchemos y aprendamos de la sabiduría de los miembros de nuestra comunidad resiliente para que crezcamos y nos adaptemos juntos mientras seguimos las medidas de salud pública y seguridad para avanzar hacia un estado próspero y la comunidad local.
