Your gift can change lives

Although Marin County has weathered the COVID pandemic better than other parts of California, for large numbers of families and individuals of low income, the crisis is not over. Creating a plan to move Marin County into an equitable future requires an approach that takes bold steps forward. Now is the time to ensure that all Marin County residents can stay on pathways to self-sufficiency and thriving.
