The Marin Community Foundation, in collaboration with the County of Marin, have determined all donations from this point forward for the COVID-19 pandemic response will be dedicated to rental assistance for our most economically vulnerable residents. This will help us mitigate the effects of loss of income as we continue to shelter in place. Please consider giving to help everyone remain housed during these challenging times. Those wishing to make a donation can do so by going to the Marin Community Foundation donation website:

The West Marin Fund's Covid-19 Donation Page & Button:

> Providing immediate funding to trusted local non-profits that provide essential services in the community;
> Ensuring families and individuals facing the greatest hardship receive immediate assistance – particularly people who are undocumented, families of low-income with young children, and isolated seniors;
> Helping local nonprofits link to governmental and other resources to continue operating;
> Collaborating with the County, other foundations, donors and agencies to get resources to where they are most needed;
> Supporting mid-term needs and long-term rehabilitation of our West Marin communities.
