Overview:

NOTE: We will proactively identify potential grant recipients, solicit guidance on potential recipients from community advisors, our Board of Directors, and local units of government, and recommend final awards.

In order to move resources quickly and not further burden organizations on the frontlines of the pandemic, we are not hosting a formal application process at this time.

United Way of Champaign County and Community Foundation of East Central Illinois launch COVID-19 Relief Fund

Fund will support direct service providers on the front lines of the pandemic

The United Way of Champaign County and Community Foundation of East Central Illinois Boards of Directors have authorized the establishment of the Champaign County COVID-19 Relief Fund. The Boards have each seeded the fund with up to $50,000, creating up to $100,000 to respond to the needs in our area. The fund will distribute resources to United Way’s existing network of partners and the partners supported by the Community Foundation.

As local funders, both organizations understand many individuals and families have been affected by the outbreak already and more will continue to be affected. The Fund will grant resources to community-based organizations that are directly supporting local residents and families who are most affected by emerging health, economic, and social impacts.
