United Way of Chester County has launched the Chester County COVID-19 Response Fund allowing us to deploy resources to community-based organizations offering crucial support to families and individuals in need. United Way of Chester County remains committed to supporting the well-being of our most vulnerable residents.
With your support, United Way of Chester County and our partners will be best able to assist non-profits and the people they serve by:
- Providing support to programs that address things such as food vulnerability, housing assistance and financial stability, healthcare, utility assistance and other basic needs
- Providing non-profits with critical resources allowing for response to immediate community and client needs
The above list is not exclusive and is subject to change based on ongoing or emerging needs.
Funds raised by this Response Fund will be provided to Chester County nonprofit organizations through a rapid deployment mini-grant process overseen by the United Way of Chester County Community Impact Co-Chairs along with other key community stakeholders.
100% of donations to this fund will be distributed to non-profit organizations in Chester County.
Donations by check should be made payable to United Way of Chester County and mailed to:
495 Thomas Jones Way, Suite 302
Exton, PA 19341
