No matter the circumstances, we want to continue our support to Get Comfortable agency partners. They are, by virtue of their selection, already meeting the most pressing needs in our community. And now, even more so.
While the rhythm of Get Comfortable would ordinarily mean that our beneficiaries wouldn’t receive any financial support until December, given the unique times we’ve decided to take unique action. After attending several community stakeholder meetings, speaking with our Advisory Council, and digging into the best practices of disaster philanthropy, we’ve decided to disburse a mid-year ‘down payment’ to our agency partners so that they may, in turn, mobilize these resources where they matter the most.
Basically, we’re seeking to raise as many funds as possible between now and April 30th, and then send them out as quickly as possible. Scroll down to learn how you can get involved.
After we close out this fundraising push, we’ll convene both our Athens Advisory Council and our Atlanta Advisory Council over Zoom to determine, based upon the available resources, which agencies should receive what support. We’ll then get those dollars out the door and into the hands of these local rock stars!
