COVID-19 Response Fund

United Way has launched the COVID-19 Response Fund to assist United Way partner programs, 501(c)3 non-profits and other organizations. Currently priority is given to those organizations who remain open during this time to better serve the community. The United Way Response Fund will assist with grants to fill gaps and help cover added expenses as it relates to COVID-19. 100% of the funds raised through this effort will be used to help those affected throughout our community.
