What was your organization/company’s biggest accomplishment in the past six months – one year?
In March 2020, RSF Foundation came together with the Coastal Community Foundation and Leichtag Foundation to launch the North County COVID-19 Response Fund. We have all felt the lasting impact of the pandemic and it’s also demonstrated the need for nonprofit community support for at-risk community members already at the brink of not being able to make ends meet. The situation called for a coordinated, streamlined response. To date, the Fund has granted $750,000+ to 36 frontline nonprofits. You can learn more about the Fund on the RSF Foundation website.
