MultiCare Health System has announced that its Community Partnership Fund awarded $750,000 to more than 80 organizations focused on housing, hunger, healthcare, children, and education in the Puget Sound and Inland Northwest regions during 2019.

In 2019, MultiCare awarded grants to a variety of programs. One recipient, Auburn’s Pantry Project, used the funds to supply the Auburn School District with vouchers for things like student clothing, hygiene items, or weekend food supplies. Another, Serra House in Tacoma, used the grant to hire a housing manager for its 24/7 shelter, serving those ages 13 to 17. The YMCA of Spokane is using funds to focus on its domestic violence response.

In its first five years, the Community Partnership Fund has awarded more than $3 million to dozens of community groups across Washington to support programs that improve the health and economic well-being of communities. For more information about the fund, visit this website.
