COVID-19 RESPONSE

United Way of St. Joseph County (UWSJC) has launched the COVID 19 Response Fund for St. Joseph County, IN. We have received generous contributions, including a $200,000 investment from the Community Foundation of St. Joseph County, in addition to private foundations and businesses. As a reflection of the generosity and strong sense of community we share, the fund has raised over $2.9 million dollars and we are working hard to continue growing this critical resource as quickly as possible.

UWSJC recognizes the potential for economic impact, unpaid absence, illness, or job loss related directly or indirectly to the virus, increased child care needs and the potential risk of not being able to pay housing, utility and food bills due to financial strains.

The Fund will allow not-for-profit partners to apply for additional funding to respond to the short-term, immediate needs of individuals and families that will be impacted by COVID-19 as well as the long term impacts that have yet to be seen.

Organizations that serve populations in need every day will find themselves under-resourced to serve a growing demand for those services. Keeping a strong network of engaged providers will be critical to the health of our community services. Funds will be released on a rolling basis as fundraising continues throughout the outbreak and recovery phases of the crisis—allowing resources to adapt and move quickly in response to the evolving needs in subsequent phases.

In addition, United Way will be pre-releasing April funding to its agency partners in the community and removing programmatic restrictions—in order to make those funds available for unexpected COVID 19 impact as needed.

Donors who wish to help support the COVID 19 Response Fund can do so here. United Way is underwriting all administrative costs associated with this fund in order to direct 100% of proceeds to address the community’s needs.

Individuals seeking assistance for immediate needs should call 2-1-1, Indiana’s resource referral line in order to find applicable resources.
