About this funder:



COVID-19 Response Fund

The COVID 19 Response Fund is a partnership comprising Mecklenburg County, the City of Charlotte, corporations, houses of faith and others. The Fund’s goal is to help those individuals and families in Mecklenburg County most impacted by the pandemic, with a special emphasis on providing for the basic human needs of our community’s most vulnerable residents. The Fund will issue grants to eligible nonprofits able to meet existing needs. 

The Fund complements government interventions and investments, and expands the local community’s capacity to address the outbreak’s social, health and economic impacts, with a special focus on populations disproportionately affected by the outbreak. Funding is restricted to Mecklenburg County organizations offering programming and services for residents. 

The Fund is jointly administered by Foundation For The Carolinas and United Way of Central Carolinas.
