The Disaster Relief Fund was established by the Skagit Community Foundation, United Way, and the Economic Development Alliance of Skagit County (EDASC). The fund was developed to help address the growing impact on Skagit County from the COVID-19.
During the past couple of months, we raised over $200K. “It’s amazing and inspiring to see these donors investing in our community,” said Skagit Community Foundation Executive Director Michael Stark.
Special thanks to the incredible contributions from the P.A.C.C.A.R. Foundation, Puget Sound Energy Foundation, Medina Foundation, Perigee Foundation, B.E.C.U. Foundation, Columbia Bank, People’s Bank, Sound Financial Group, Roger and Mary Ann Mercer, Bill and Janet Dehon, Chad, and Colleen Fisher. Among the top donors are the PACCAR Foundation and Perigee Foundation, each donating $50,000 to the fund.
Distributions from the fund supported over 20 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations who directly support vulnerable populations and critical human needs impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
