If you need help.

The City of Seattle has put together an amazing list of resources available if you need help. Here it is – http://www.seattle.gov/mayor/covid-19

How you can help.

We are all in this together and we know that UW employees are incredibly generous with their time, talent and treasure. Here is a searchable list of nonprofits that are part of the UWCFD. If your favorite nonprofit is missing, let us know – uwcfd@uw.edu. We’re happy to work with them to add them to our program.

Give

All of your favorite nonprofits need support right now. Funding streams have been hit hard. Many of them are serving our most vulnerable populations.

  • Consider making a direct gift to your favorite nonprofit to provide immediate support and cash flow.
  • Give through the UWCFD for longer term assistance, cash flow and organizational stability. You can make a payroll donation anytime using a paper form or MyCFD
  • Give to your favorite Food Bank. The need is growing and donations are down by 70%.
