100% of contributions given to this fund will be directed to the areas most in need.
• The United Way Board of Directors will approve funding distributions swiftly and on-going as needs are assessed.
• The UWCC COVID-19 Response Fund is meant to serve the community for a short to medium term ranging from 3-6 months, but may extend past that time depending on developments.

Application Process for Entities in Need of Support:
Funding is only available to 501c3 organizations that operate and serve in the Clatsop County region. Not available to individuals.
Our community is stronger when it is UNITED, and it is going to take all of us to mitigate the impacts and recover as a community. Your donation, of any amount, makes a difference and is vitally important because ONE gift to United Way can touch the lives of thousands of individuals and families in Clatsop County. This pandemic is a new challenge for us, but our community spirit required in response is not. Although social distancing separates us physically, we are still as connected to each other more than ever. And we still have the power to come together in hope and in generosity.
