The current Covid-19 pandemic has had devastating impacts on our country, state, county and city. Beginning in March, to help mitigate the effect of this crisis, we increased our support of various Del Mar-based organizations including Del Mar Community Connections (Pandemic Response Driver Program), the Del Mar Village Association (Fueling the Front Line), and St. Peter’s Church’s Helping Hands food program.
The Foundation is also aware of the severe impact the pandemic has had on the City’s finances, and concluded that we could make a significant difference. On August 3rd, the Del Mar Foundation presented a $180,820 donation to the Del Mar City Council, which will restore funding for budget items important to our community, connected to the Foundation’s mission, that the City had to cut from its budget because of the crisis.
We hope that this funding will benefit our community as we work together to overcome the challenges Covid-19 presents to our individual and collective health and safety, and our community’s well-being.
