DONATE TO LOCAL FAMILIES IN NEED!
The immigrants who live and work in this county are among those who have been hardest hit by the economic impacts of COVID-19. The national $2 trillion relief package for COVID 19 left out undocumented immigrants. And although Governor Newsom announced in April that the state is providing some funds for relief, it will not be nearly enough.
A coalition of local organizations have come together as SLO County UndocuSupport to collaborate on a fundraising effort in order to support immigrant residents in SLO County. Allies for Immigration Justice invites you to join us in supporting local immigrants in need by donating to The Community Foundation San Luis Obispo County’s Disaster Support Fund.
In response to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, The Community Foundation San Luis Obispo County has opened its Disaster Support Fund. Grants are being awarded to local organizations providing direct support to vulnerable community members throughout the county, including immigrants.
With your help, we can make an even bigger impact!
The need is massive and urgent. Help us meet the essential needs of our most vulnerable neighbors! We encourage those who are able to consider donating the equivalent amount of your entire stimulus check.
Of course, all donations of any amount are gratefully accepted! And if you are unable to donate at this time, you can help us to mobilize a surge of support by sharing this information widely!
IMPORTANT: Please!!! Write “SLO County UndocuSupport” on the donation form in answer to the question, “How did you hear about The Community Foundation?” This is how they will track the community interest in this important issue. THANK YOU!
We envision a country where all people, regardless of immigration status, are treated with respect and dignity, and have access to a fulfilling and prosperous political, economic and social life.
We are a grassroots network of community organizations and individuals dedicated to:
centering impacted groups,
informing public opinion through community outreach and education, and
resisting unjust immigration policies and practices through political advocacy and direct action.
