COVID-19 FUNDING APPROACH
United Way of Jackson County remains committed to standing with our community and supporting those impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak.
Together these past few months, we helped our community work through this pandemic by making sure the most vulnerable among us were protected.
Our COVID-19 fund provided financial support to Jackson County social service nonprofits for their extra-ordinary expenses related to Covid-19 through mini grants to local nonprofits with emergency expenses. Mini grants for individuals up to $350 and for organizational expenses up to $1,000 were considered.
