COVID-19 Recovery Fund
The enduring impact of COVID-19 has been devastating for the economic, physical and mental health of the Asian and Pacific Islander (API) community. Critical issues include:
- RISE IN ANTI-ASIAN RACISM: The pandemic has contributed to a massive spike in anti-Asian hate incidents, attacks and discrimination. Read more about our focused efforts to address this here.
- HIGHER FATALITY RATES: The fatality rate from COVID-19 for Asians is nearly triple that of all other ethnic groups in San Francisco.
- LONGER UNEMPLOYMENT: Almost 50% of unemployed Asians have been out of work longer than any other ethnic group.
- INCREASED BULLYING: 1 in 4 Asian American youths experience racist bullying.
In response to these needs, our final round of grantmaking for 2021 will be distributed through our COVID-19 Recovery Fund to nonprofits working on the ground to provide crucial support and services.
