Overview:

COVID-19 Response Fund for Greater Dayton

With the outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and an increased strain on individuals and families in the Dayton Region, The Dayton Foundation and the United Way of the Greater Dayton Area, along with a coalition of philanthropic, government and other individual partners, have joined together to establish the COVID-19 Response Fund for Greater Dayton. Individuals, businesses, foundations and organizations may make charitable contributions to the fund, which will help provide flexible resources to nonprofits that are at the frontlines of the COVID-19 response. The Dayton Foundation is waiving all administrative fees and is paying all credit card processing fees so that 100 percent of all donations will be used to assist others.

Grants from the fund will complement the work of public health officials and expand the community’s capacity to respond and assist effectively and efficiently in the outbreak. Grants will be awarded to vetted community-based and 501(c)(3) charitable organizations that are focused on:

  • Immediate, basic human needs (food, shelter, safety, etc.);
  • Mental health services; and
  • Addressing the economic impact on individuals from reduced or lost work due to the outbreak.
