Portland Coronavirus Solidarity Fund

This is a fundraiser designed to support our communities in the wake of COVID-19. Individuals and mutual-aid groups can directly submit funds request (expense). Scroll down for details.



Closing the fund down

Symbiosis PDX is officially closing our coronavirus solidaraity fund after distributing over $60,000 from the community back to those most materially and physically impacted in the community,  as well as to mutual aid groups who showed up hard during this crisis.

Though the needs we have been meeting with this fund havent come to an end, as the exploitative systems in place that perpetuate this kind of suffering that requires these sorts of solidarity efforts has not been replaced with one that moves beyond institutional scarcity, we as an org must recalibrate our efforts based on our current capacity.

Though we are not distributing funds directly to individuals and groups doing good work for now on this platform, you will still find us doing the work of material solidarity and political organizing toward a world where this type of solidarity is no longer needed.

Paying out folks with the remaining funds

Due to the lack of current funding available (approx $1544.02 as of Oct  12th 2021, for the more than $12,000 worth of requests) we will be giving out the final funds in order of request recieved, while still prioritizing the historically and presently marginalized and oppressed. Thank you to all of our contributors from the community who made this possible.

With love and solidarity,
Symbiosis PDX
