Foundation for Working Families

The Foundation for Working Families is a hardship and disaster relief program overseen by the Washington State Labor Council (WSLC). 

AFSCME Council 28/WFSE and more than a dozen of its locals have contributed to the fund. Individuals are encouraged to do the same.


Please donate to the Foundation for Working Families. Locals and members can send checks made out to the Foundation for Working Families to us, and we’ll get them to the Foundation.

Send checks to:

All applications are based on funding availability. Priority is given to UNION members who have experienced a financial hardship and need assistance (for example: eviction notice, gas/power shut off). 

Assistance is limited to a maximum of or equivalent to $500.
