United Way launches COVID-19 Community Relief Fund

ANN ARBOR, MI (March 15, 2020) United Way of Washtenaw County has launched an emergency relief fund to raise funds for the emerging and critical needs of the community due to the coronavirus pandemic.  With initial support from the Song Family Foundation, this fund’s goal is to raise more than $250,000 to offer emergency relief and ensure resources are available in Washtenaw County.
Nonprofit agencies anticipate a surge in neighborhood needs, unchartered service requests and increased staff capacity needs and operating reserve needs.  100% of the funds raised will be used to help non-profits meet the needs of the vulnerable populations including those needing food, children, families facing loss of income due to business closures, health issues and those experiencing housing crisis.
Donate to the COVID-19 Community Relief Fund and 100% of your gift will be used to help agencies meet the needs of vulnerable populations.  Donor Advised Fund managers are encouraging release of funds to support agencies responding to the COVID-19 crisis.  Ways to give include online, stock, DAF, and mailing in a check payable to United Way of Washtenaw County at 2305 Platt Rd, Ann Arbor, MI 48104.
