Buffalo Together: Community Response Fund

Host Organization: United Way of Buffalo and Erie Countymdi-circle-small Buffalo, NY, USA mdi-circle-small


As the Western New York community grapples with the horrific mass shooting at a Jefferson Avenue grocery store on Buffalo’s East Side, dozens of local funders, coordinated by the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo and United Way of Buffalo & Erie County, are coming together to establish the Buffalo Together Community Response Fund.

Comprised of local philanthropic organizations, this collaborative effort is built upon our collective desire to take action and to work to address immediate needs in our community, long-term community rebuilding, and systemic issues that have marginalized communities of color. While still in the early stages of development, the group will listen and learn from communities of color to develop specific guiding principles and processes for directing the fund's resources.
