COVID-19 Response Funds Statewide

To help meet the needs of those disproportionately impacted, we provided $3.25 million in grants, plus an additional $500,000 from Pivotal Ventures (Melinda Gates’s private office), for distribution to people disproportionately impacted by the health and economic effects of COVID-19, including Black, Latinx, immigrant and refugee, and other communities of color.

Our grants included $1 million to the "All in WA" general fund; $1 million from the Gates Foundation and $500,000 from Pivotal Ventures to the Seattle Foundation COVID-19 Response Fund; and $250,000 each to community foundations in Snohomish, Pierce, Yakima, and Spokane counties, as well as to Philanthropy NW to leverage the reach of their Census Equity Network.
