Brief Description

The Washington Census Equity Fund, managed by Philanthropy Northwest, maximizes the impact of philanthropic resources toward the goal of a robust and accurate 2020 Census count across the state. The overarching desired outcomes of this effort are to organize, inform and activate residents in historically underrepresented communities that are at risk of being undercounted in the 2020 Census.

Funding Information

Eligible organizations are invited to apply for $5,000-$20,000 for 2020 Census related activities. Grant amounts will depend on the proposed scope of work. We are prioritizing funding to organizations that will engage with and conduct outreach in hard-to-count communities.
