Summary

The COVID-19 National Relief Fund will support nonprofit organizations working on the frontlines to help the most vulnerable people in the Korean American (KA) communities. These constituents of the nonprofits have been negatively affected by the COVID economic downturn. The 3 priority areas include 1) service for low-income seniors/elderly Korean American population; 2) mental health/family counseling services for the KA community; and 3) economic support for undocumented families.

Challenge

The COVID-19 pandemic has taxed the financial resources of many nonprofit organizations across the United States that serve the Korean American population. While some national funding relief has been made available for some organizations, it is not enough to bridge the gap created by the additional need for aid. The uncertainty of COVID-19 continues well into 2022 and exacerbates an already challenging situation for many people due to the economic downturn.

Solution

CKA will contribute to five regions across the U.S. with significant Korean American populations. Funds will be distributed to nonprofit organizations in these regions that support low-income seniors and care for the elderly, facilitate mental health & family counseling, or provide aid to undocumented families. Frontline workers helping the most vulnerable communities will be offered direct aid to ensure the success of their programs.

Long-Term Impact

The COVID-19 National Relief Fund will allow nonprofits to continue to serve their communities despite current financial challenges. As part of CKA's ongoing mission to partner with local nonprofits and organizations, any proceeds will be used to mitigate the immediate and long-term effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on underrepresented communities.
