The Greater Flint Urgent Relief Fund

The Greater Flint Urgent Relief Fund has been established by a coalition of philanthropic, government and business partners to quickly coordinate and deploy resources to nonprofit organizations in the Greater Flint area that are working with communities disproportionately affected by the coronavirus outbreak.

About the Fund

Established by the Community Foundation of Greater Flint in partnership with United Way of Genesee County, the Greater Flint Urgent Relief Fund will award grants on a regular basis to nonprofits that are addressing the gaps that are surfacing in key services for our most vulnerable community members. The Community Foundation and United Way will work to ensure the Fund has maximum scope and impact. The Fund Partners encourage institutions, companies and other donors to contribute to the Fund.

Details on how nonprofits might request and access resources from the Greater Flint Urgent Response Fund will be announced soon. Our goal is to be as nimble and flexible as possible in ensuring that critical services are received by those most at risk in our community.

The three priorities are: 

  • Assisting with immediate and anticipated direct service needs/gaps
  • Maintaining or expanding internal operations and infrastructure for critical nonprofits; and
  • Support costs associated with additional volunteer capacity as needed in this time of crisis.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.


  • To be selected for funding, applicants must be legally incorporated with IRS 501(c)3 status or be a governmental or religious organization with a clear, charitable purpose.
  • The Greater Flint Urgent Relief Fund will prioritize funding for organizations in the Community Foundation of Greater Flint’s service area – Genesee County. 


  •  We cannot offer direct funds to individuals at this time.
  • Funds cannot be used for partisan efforts.
  • Grants for sectarian religious purposes or any religious activities are not eligible.
