COVID-19 is causing a catastrophic economic impact on Stanwood’s small business community. The Stanwood SOARING Small Business Grant Program is a positive step, but it may not provide enough funding for every injured business to receive a grant, nor will it fix all the damage caused to those businesses that receive a grant. Unfortunately, many businesses that qualify and are deserving may not receive an Stanwood SOARING grant. Other small business funding opportunities are available through Snohomish County, the State of Washington or SBA.

In light of the current COVID-19 situation it has become clear that we need to be better prepared for future disasters that may impact our community. With this in mind, the Stanwood-Camano Disaster Relief Fund has been created. This flexible funding source will provide critical assistance to 501(c)(3) nonprofits and other charitable organizations which provide essential services in our community. This fund will give us the ability to keep our community functioning when there are urgent short-term funding needs created by unforeseen events that disrupt essential services.
Because disaster relief funding is better done consistently over time, we encourage you to consider a $10 monthly recurring donation that will be ongoing rather than a larger one-time donation. The Stanwood-Camano Area Foundation will match up to $25,000 in recurring donations made to the Disaster Relief Fund through the Floyd and Delores Jones Endowment.

To protect community health our local nonprofits have largely shut down operations that they depend upon to generate the revenue they need to provide for the needs of vulnerable community members. As a result, they are in need of emergency donations to help offset the financial loses they are incurring. Visit SCGIVE to donate.
