Whidbey Community Foundation has partnered with Washington Nonprofits, Island County, Sno-Isle Libraries, and the US Census Bureau to host a Census 2020 workshop at the Coupeville Library on November 6 from 10am – 12pm.
Whidbey Community Foundation is excited to announce that we have received $10,000 in funding from the Washington Census Equity Fund which will help us promote a robust and accurate count in the 2020 Census. Census data is used to determine how more than $800 billion in federal funds are distributed back to local communities every year for services and infrastructure, including schools, hospitals, fire departments and roads.
WCF will provide targeted training opportunities for local nonprofit organizations, informational handouts, and a public outreach campaign. Training for nonprofits will include workshops for staff, board members, and volunteers that work with hard-to-count individuals from all backgrounds on Whidbey Island.Continue reading “WCF Received a Grant from the Washington Census Equity Fund”
