Schultz Family Foundation and Serve Washington Launch WA COVID Response Corps to Address Food Insecurity Crisis

The Schultz Family Foundation and Serve Washington have partnered to build and oversee the Washington COVID Response Corps. The partnership combines AmeriCorps’ existing funding and programmatic infrastructure with philanthropic investment that underwrites a portion of the match contributions for AmeriCorps members at organizations that have both financial difficulty and a willingness to join a coordinated one-year COVID relief program. This Corps will address food insecurity in communities across the state, allowing us and our partners to share the value of collective impact. SFF will also offer training and development for members serving in AmeriCorps and a learning community for the organizations supporting them.
