We are Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a strong community with a long history of helping those in need. 79.8% of residents see themselves as a member of the community, and 74% feel they can count on their neighbors. During this incredibly difficult time, members of our community are struggling to get by, put food on the table, and care for their loved ones. The Santa Monica COVID-19 Relief Fund will provide critically needed funds to the City and other organizations to help obtain necessary sanitation and medical supplies, provide food to those experiencing food insecurity, provide shelter to those in need, and support volunteer relief efforts.
The City will be making recommendations regarding the distribution of proceeds from the Relief Fund. As a result of these recommendations, the fund may distribute proceeds to (a) eligible non-profits identified by the City to provide services associated with the COVID-19 emergency or (b) the City for charitable uses by the City associated with the COVID-19 emergency. If the Relief Fund receives contributions that exceed the amount that can be used in responding to the COVID-19 emergency, the City may recommend that the fund distribute the excess proceeds to non-profits or the City for general charitable uses that benefit the City’s residents.
