Nonprofits across the county are in desperate need of donations to assist those who are deeply suffering as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak. If you want to make a donation but are uncertain as to which organization to donate to, Indivisible Santa Barbara has a suggestion:
The Covid-19 Joint Response Effort, a collaboration between 18 prominent local foundations, is channeling funds to nonprofits as well as to individuals within Santa Barbara County. One hundred percent of donations go to aid recipients. The individual assistance component of the Effort is being led by the United Way of S.B. County. The Effort supports every vulnerable community member, regardless of documentation.
During the month of April, Indivisible Santa Barbara will match, dollar-for-dollar and to the extent of our available funds, all member donations. Simply make your check payable to “United Way of Santa Barbara County”, include on the memo line: COVID-19 Response, and mail to: Indivisible Santa Barbara, 107 Nopalitos Way # 41138, Santa Barbara, CA 93103.
Every week, Indivisible will collect the checks and submit with a matching check. Your donation is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
