Emergency coronavirus funding for nonprofits is included in the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation President Carolyn Cawley and U.S. Chamber of Commerce Chief Policy Officer Neil Bradley discuss how the CARES Act impacts nonprofits, what to expect in the implementation phase, and how it can help nonprofits during the coronavirus crisis.

Answering the Top 5 COVID-19 Questions from California Nonprofits

There are increasingly good resources for how nonprofits can access federal funds and other federal-level resources, from organizations such as the National Council of NonprofitsNonprofit Quarterly, and field-based organizations like Americans for the Arts. We have started collecting them on our own resources page, but we’ve been getting similar questions from so many California nonprofits that we want to offer a few responses to what we see as the Top Five Questions for nonprofits right now.

The Arts Remain Alive in Encinitas!

Arts Alive Banners on Display at E101 Marketplace (formerly Seaside Bazaar) August 1 & 2, 2020 Encinitas, CA (July, 2020)

Appreciation for the arts doesn’t pause for COVID-19. Neither does the 101 Artists’ Colony signature program of two decades, Arts Alive Encinitas. Since mid-March, 62 original works of art have been flying proudly over a six mile stretch of Coast Highway through Leucadia, Encinitas and Cardiff-by-the-Sea.

On Saturday, August 1 and Sunday, August 2 from 10 to 4, a FREE community viewing of these banners will be held – socially distanced, of course – at E101 Marketplace, 459 S Coast Hwy 101, Encinitas. Silent auction bids will be recorded. (No live auction this year.) The 2020 Arts Alive Exhibit will be displayed in the Cardiff Town Center (next to the Seaside Market) on Sunday, August 9 from 10 to 4. Silent auction bids will be recorded. (No live auction this year.) These original paintings were created by talented local artists in our community.

New this year – a video that scrolls through all of the banner creations:

To place a bid, call 760-473-5164 before Tuesday, August 11, 2020 at 5pm.

The 101 Artists’ Colony has persevered throughout the shutdowns and quarantines of the COVID-19 pandemic to bring Arts Alive to the community once again.

Thank you to this year’s sponsors –

Hansen Surfboards, Seaside Market, & Leucadia 101 Mainstreet Association

– for their support of Arts Alive here in Encinitas.

The 1883 Schoolhouse

Encinitas Historical Society

…home of the Encinitas Historical Society, where you’ll discover photographs, exhibits, research papers, oral histories and well-informed docents eager to share their passion for this unique city and its history.

Walk across the original wood floor and imagine yourself back in 1883, when the newly-built one-room schoolhouse was home to the town’s entire population of school age children – all eight of them.

Immerse yourself in the history of Encinitas, its landmarks and its people, and get to know how this beach-side community of fishermen and farmers evolved into the vibrant and fascinating city it is today. We look forward to seeing you and taking you on an unforgettable journey back in time…

Entry is free but donations are always welcome.

Community Resource Center

Dear Encinitas Neighbor,

Thank you for helping us exceed our goal of raising $500,000 in less than five weeks!

It is heartening to know that although we can’t be together now, we ARE together in taking care of our community’s vulnerable neighbors.

We thought a goal of $500,000 in five weeks was bold. But the need continues to grow. Over the past month, we’ve seen more families depending on CRC for emergency food, shelter and safety from domestic violence. Our nation’s economic recovery will take a long time, and we must prepare now to ensure we have the funding to help our neighbors in need now and in the year to come.

$1,000,000 is our new goal to support the services we’ll need to provide over the next year.

We need your support to reach this bold and audacious goal, so together we can make sure to help our neighbors who are hungry, homeless and hurting.
