- Solicit Charitable Dollars: Engage individuals, corporations, professional advisors, private foundations, and other funding partners to contribute to a disaster relief fund.
- Convene Stakeholders: Coordinate with partners such as Placer County Health & Human Services, safety net providers, local government, civic organizations, and faith-based organizations to support system-wide approach.
- Assess Community Needs: Identify priority needs among vulnerable populations, such as homebound seniors, low-income families, veterans, and at-risk youth through regular communication with nonprofit network, key staff at the county and local jurisdictions, First 5, neighboring community foundations and funders, and faith-based organizations.
- Deploy Core Support: Leverage and maximize charitable resources through strategic grantmaking, community leadership, and advocacy.
There are two key components to the structure of PCF’s approach. First, the COVID-19 Fund is unrestricted, which means that charitable dollars can be used according to an informed response strategy. This flexibility allows dollars to be leveraged and maximized across community needs. Second, the cyclical nature of PCF’s approach allows for resources to be mobilized quickly and fill gaps in the system as they arise.
