Who’s involved?

Central Oregon Rotary Clubs have teamed up with Family Access Network (FAN) to address critical needs among homeless and homebound families who have been hardest hit during the COVID-19 crisis. With your help, we can leverage Rotary grants and donations into at least $17,000 worth of assistance in the form of food and sanitation supplies.

What can you do to help?

  • Donate directly to this campaign now by clicking on this link. Any amount helps. Donors will receive a receipt directly from The Family Access Network. FAN is a 501c3 organization, so all donations are tax deductible.*
  • Share this request and link with friends, relatives and other service organizations along with other potential donors in your community to broaden our reach. Post on your Facebook pages and share with all your friends.

How is this possible?

Rotary Clubs in Bend, Jefferson County (Madras), Crook County (Prineville), Redmond, Sisters and Sunriver/LaPine have added to COVID-19 Disaster Relief grant funds received from the Rotary Foundation World Fund to offer $8,500 for aid here in Central Oregon. That means every dollar you donate through the FAN donate link will be matched through our local Rotary club grant funds (up to $8,500)! All money raised will be used to meet food and sanitation supply needs in our local communities.

Where will the money go?

Working with each community’s FAN advocate, 80% of all funds received will be used to purchase food, with the remaining funds to go toward supplying sanitation and hygiene products for families in need in each of the nine communities in the region. The Family Access Network connects families in need across our tri-county area, and local FAN advocates are well suited to coordinate allocation of the funds to benefit families in each community. The partnership between FAN and our local clubs helps leverage both financial aid and on-the-ground knowledge so the funds can make the most impact.

FAN and the Central Oregon Rotarians thank you for all your support!
