The Skagit Community Foundation was one of IRIS’ founding donors. The needs of immigrants range widely from food, clothing, housing assistance, hygiene supplies, utility bills, basic household items, and more. Every family’s situation is unique.
SCF recognizes the importance of flexible funding to local nonprofit organizations. Donations that are unrestricted provide general operations support and help organizations efficiently accomplish their missions.
“Because we believe that teams with experience on the front lines of challenges will know best how to put the money to good use, we encourage them to spend it however they choose.”
- MacKenzie Scott, The Giving Pledge philanthropist
