Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Fairbanks, AK

Total Budget: $6,750

Area of Focus: Community economic development

Activity Type: Community Development: Disaster Recovery

Summary: Raise funds to assist families (food, job search, networking) that are still recovering from the business fallout of COVID-19


We will reach out and identify families in Fairbanks who are struggling after losing their primary job and now face a future with less resources to feed and care for their family. The project will mainly get its message to the community through social media and public service announcements asking individuals in need to contact us to set up an interview so that we can develop a plan to help them. The timeline will begin this fall as family expenses rise with the oncoming winter and the need to provide heat and food for their families. Club members will be involved in finding families to help, interviewing, and determining a plan that fits that person/family. Funds raised will go to a variety of things, but mostly food, fuel (heat) & job search assistance.

Board meeting decision made today to request $100 from each member towards our fundraising goals. This would go out in the first quarter's billing statements. This is a voluntary request, not a raise in dues.

Spoke with Brad today and asked if our Youth Exchange fundraising money from our first quarter billing could be used to satisfy the fundraising necessary under the Grants program. He said yes which is a huge help because of our current difficulties with gathering crowds for fundraising. In light of this, he urged our Club to try and wrap up our grant requirements by the end of the Rotary year (June).

Explained at board meeting today my conversation with Brad Gamble re: the use of our youth exchange funds and how they can be used (since the Youth Exchange program is postposed for the 20/21 Rotary year) to satisfy the fundraising necessary for our grants program.
