Right now, more people are reaching out to the FC People’s Fund for support than ever before in our three years of organizing in Franklin County. Through our collaborations with local service providers and mutual aid efforts, we are connected to people whose precarious circumstances are further compounded by the fall-out of the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are asking for your help to raise $50,000 to provide financial relief to those most impacted by this unprecedented crisis, including undocumented people, people of color, and poor and unhoused people. We prioritize funding those who do not qualify for government safety nets or cash payouts that may be available to others.
Please donate if you are able and share this fundraiser widely with your networks! Email it to your family, post it on social media, tell your friends. Thank you for your support!
About the Franklin County People’s Fund:
The FC People’s Fund is a grassroots mutual aid fund that provides short-term financial support to families navigating the risk or reality of family separation related to deportation, incarceration, and DCF involvement due to houselessness. The project supports those who are targeted due to race, immigration status, or poverty by providing community-generated donations on a case-by-case basis. Now in its fourth year, the fund is organized by an all-volunteer collective and relies on an informal network of community members who have committed to donating when local needs arise. If you would like to become a part of our ongoing donor network, please get in touch with us at [email redacted].
