Thank you for contributing to the COVID-19 Community Fund

United Way of New York City connects you immediately to community members in need. We are constantly evaluating where the greatest need is, and how you can quickly have the biggest impact. Together with our partners, we are committed to ensuring that our City’s most vulnerable families have the support they need to weather the short- and long-term impacts of the coronavirus outbreak.

At-home resources are more critical now than ever. We can only do this with your support.

The UWNYC Covid-19 Community Fund, hosted by United Way in partnership with corporate, nonprofit and foundation entities, and individual donors like you, will allow us to rapidly deploy resources to community-based organizations that are offering emergency relief to families and individuals in need.

With your support, United Way and our partners will be best able to assist vulnerable populations, such as families and individuals facing loss of income due to business and school closures and children lacking access to school meals.
