The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation quickly deployed over $5 million to local response efforts in Washington state, plus technical assistance from current and former employees, on top of regular investments in education, housing and homelessness, and strengthening the nonprofit sector. This local investment is also in addition to our global response, and in addition to the adjustments we've made in our education work to support teachers and students during remote learning.
