Established in 2006, the UFW Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that advocates for labor rights and protections for farm workers across the U.S. and provides educational outreach and critical services such as immigration legal services to low-income rural California communities. 

During the pandemic, the UFW Foundation continued its mission to empower the most vulnerable communities by providing $23 million in emergency relief assistance payments. We also organized events that helped administer more than 37,000 COVID-19 tests with a total of 125,362 farm workers assisted. Additionally, 40,307 persons in rural communities received their COVID-19 vaccinations through community events organized by the UFW Foundation and more than 2.8 million masks/protective equipment were distributed. The UFW Foundation also distributed 147,620 food boxes and 247,825 culturally-appropriate meals to families in need during the pandemic.
