The PA Immigrant Relief Fund is a statewide fund that will provide direct emergency assistance to people excluded from federal COVID-19 assistance programs due to their immigration status or the immigration status of a family member and are in need of immediate financial assistance.
#ShareYourCheck: Share all or a portion of your stimulus check to help vulnerable immigrant families in Pennsylvania! Every dollar donated here will be directed to community-based organizations to be distributed as emergency assistance to eligible individuals.
This fund is hosted by PA is Ready!, an innovative, community-led network and participatory grantmaking fund rooted in and serving diverse immigrant and refugee communities across Pennsylvania. The overarching goal of the PA is Ready! network is to ensure that immigrant communities have the skills and resources necessary for building safe and welcoming communities that promote all resident’s well-being.
You can also give to this fund through the Philadelphia Foundation. To direct your donation to the PA Immigrant Relief Fund, search for PA is Ready! Fund in the “Select a Cause” section.
