Disaster Response Strategy:

Augmenting Capacity of Our School Districts + Providing Critical Support to Our Non-Profit Partners that are Taking Care of Our Most Vulnerable Children

J2W Foundation continues to support shorter-term COVID-19 disaster response efforts within our service areas. We will transition our COVID-19 disaster response grantmaking efforts to our long-term disaster recovery strategy that will support partner organizations for years to come.

"J2W contracted Yount, Hyde, and Barbour (YHB), a regionally-based certified public accounting and consulting firm, to assist 3 partner non-profits with navigating the CARES Act to maximize revenue recovery. All 3 successfully submitted EIDL applications"- April 2020
