WHO WE ARE
We are a group of volunteer Blaine County community members who would like to support the most vulnerable individuals in our community during times of crisis. Motivated by the closing of local schools and businesses in response to COVID-19, and knowing those that already live on the edge of being financially secure will suffer the most, we hope to facilitate financial assistance now and in future times of crisis.
WHAT WE DO
We provide assistance to individuals who live and/or work in Blaine County and are experiencing financial hardship due to unanticipated crisis. We will award small grants to individuals and directly pay identified living expenses that cannot be otherwise deferred or negotiated such as rent, insurance and medical expenses. We also hope to direct those in crisis to resources in our community in order to insure non-duplication of services.
HOW WE DO IT
We accept donations that will be granted to individuals who have applied and are approved for assistance. The Board of Directors of Blaine County Charitable Fund will attempted to meet weekly during times of crisis, and monthly thereafter, to evaluate applications and distribute funds. 100% of our funds will go to grantees.
We provide assistance to individuals living and/or working in Blaine County who are experiencing financial hardship due to an unanticipated crisis.
Appication to the IRS for our 501c3 status has been submitted for expedited consideration. Upon approval of our non-profit status, donations will be retroactive tax deductible.
If donating now through an existing 501c3 is important in order to capture your support, we have partnered with The Advocates to accept donations on our behalf. Click here for more info
