August 25, 2020 Update on Sonoma County Nonprofits by Karin Demarest

August 27, 2020 2:56 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

On August 25, Karin Demarest, Vice President for Community Impact for the  Community Foundation Sonoma County, presented an update on the state of nonprofits in Sonoma County for  Impact members, guests, and local nonprofit leaders. Since the October 2017 wildfires, Karin has devoted her time to the Sonoma County Resilience Fund, which CFSC launched to support the community’s long-term disaster recovery and resilience. Karin began her discussion with a general overview of the shifting and rising needs of the community and the declining resources of its nonprofits during the COVID-19 pandemic. The needs include not only basics such as food and shelter, but also support for mental health, childcare, environmental issues, racial and ethnic equity, and the “digital divide” impacting many students’ ability to participate in distance learning. Impact members also learned from Karin and the participating nonprofit leaders ways we can help nonprofits and the community to recover and build resilience in the face of disaster. One of her key takeaways was the need for unrestricted funding that allows nonprofits to pivot rapidly as situations evolve.
