About this funder:



United Way of South Central Nebraska and Hastings Community Foundation have announced the creation of a fund to aid organizations serving those impacted by the COVID-19 virus. Grant requests will be assessed based on their ability to serve impacted populations or limiting the spread and impact of the virus.

Initial grants will be funded up to $500, but could potentially increase based on availability funds.

  • Grants are not limited to United Way funded partners.
