Emergency COVID-19 Funding for Nonprofits

Posted Mar 27, 2020 04:50 PM
As our community deals with the coronavirus outbreak and the economic downturn several organizations and government entities are offering nonprofits (as well as small businesses and individuals) grants to help them get back on their feet.

Monitor information from Washington Nonprofits, Idaho Nonprofit Center, and the Nonprofit Association of Oregon. If you are outside the Pacific Northwest, you can find you state association by visiting National Council of Nonprofits. Join these advocacy organizations to support their work!

Public Funding Options

U.S. Small Business Administration's Disaster Loan Assistance: Businesses, nonprofit organizations, homeowners, and renters can apply for federal disaster loans if they are unable to meet their obligations and pay ordinary and necessary operating expenses.

The Washington State Small Business Flex Fund is available to nonprofits too! Washington nonprofits with fewer than 50 employees and annual revenue of less than $3 million can apply for a low-interest loan of up to $150,000 for rent, utilities, staff, and more.

Other Resources

AFP Advancement Northwest has created a LinkedIn group for the entire fundraising community! Use it as a gathering place and discussion board during the COVID-19 crisis. Join the list, where everyone can share resources in real time. Please forward this to your friends and colleagues.
