United Way and Rochester Area Community Foundation: Community Crisis Fund for COVID-19 Fund

About This Fund

United Way and Rochester Area Community Foundation have partnered on a centralized funding pool to rapidly deploy flexible resources to nonprofits that are disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, the economic consequences of the outbreak, community and organizational recovery, and future community emergencies.

The Community Crisis Fund has been activated to provide flexible resources to organizations in our region working with communities who are disproportionately impacted by coronavirus and the economic consequences of this outbreak.

The first phase of funding will be used to meet the immediate needs of front line human services organizations that have strong experience serving low-income and vulnerable residents. They will address the economic impact of the COVID-19 outbreak and the immediate needs of economically vulnerable populations caused by COVID-19 related closures (food, shelter, clothing, childcare, hygiene products, cleaning supplies, etc.). The Fund will support nonprofits that are disproportionately impacted by the pandemic, provide community and organizational recovery, and future community emergencies.

About The Host Organization

Our community faces complex challenges. Many local people struggle to make ends meet. Our collective response must be coordinated and comprehensive to achieve what no one individual or organization can do alone.
