Silicon Valley Community Foundation
Silicon Valley Community Foundation (SVCF) is positioned to meet the ongoing needs of our local communities and take on unexpected challenges. SVCF is leading an effort with their other Bay Area philanthropic partners on a regional response to this public health crisis. Donations will support lead organizations and their immediate efforts to address COVID-19 related challenges.
Adopt A Family of Marin
Adopt A Family is committed to serving Marin families and providing a safety net during this challenging time. They will continue to provide financial assistance to families in need. They are focused on increasing the stability of individual families to prevent homelessness. Some services they are providing include: emergency food assistance to parents that are struggling to buy groceries and helping families that are struggling to keep their lights, water and gas turned on.
San Francisco Marin Food Bank
The Food Bank continues to do the day-in and day-out job of making sure vulnerable neighbors get the food they need. Food banks are an essential service provider. They are working with San Francisco and Marin School Districts to host pop-up food pantries at schools that are offering to-go meals to students. When students and parents pick up their breakfast and lunch, they will also be able to get pre-bagged groceries to take home. This will help make sure families have the food they need.
Destination: Home will work with its Homelessness Prevention System partners to provide rapid financial assistance and resources to individuals and households who would be at risk of homelessness if coronavirus-related disruptions worsen.
Their teams are on the front lines, tirelessly supporting those in the community most vulnerable and at-risk. Their essential services include housing and caring for people with HIV/AIDS and other chronic illnesses. They support aging adults, adults with disabilities and immigrants. They provide food and care for seniors and families experiencing homelessness.
