Mothers of Color COVID-19 Grant
$6,655 by 41 people
We are lucky to partner with Seattle Works, who will be managing grant disbursement for this initiative going forward. PLEASE DONATE HERE AT THE SEATTLE WORKS WEBSITE, YOUR DONATION WILL BE TAX-DEDUCTIBLE.
On May 25, I started a weekly, one time grant per recipient of $250 for mothers of color who have been impacted by the pandemic.
In less than 5 days we had over 300 applicants, each with a compelling story. This fund aims to help support these weekly grants, so that we can support as many mothers as possible – in addition to the at least $250 I'll be personally disbursing per week. We are currently prioritizing mothers impacted by domestic violence, homelessness or other extenuating family circumstances that have been exacerbated by the pandemic.
100% of these funds will go directly to the vetted mother of color.
Amina Ibrahim is kindly assisting me with vetting English applications.
If you are a mother of color impacted by COVID-19 you can apply for the grant here. The application is also available in Spanish. Karina San Juan and Silvia Jaramillo are managing the applications in Spanish.
Please take care and stay safe.
