COVID-19 Response

COVID-19 Basic Needs Relief Fund

 

In March, United Way Manitowoc County launched our COVID-19 Basic Needs Relief Fund to support local nonprofits and other organizations. Launched in partnership with Manitowoc County’s COAD (Community Organizations Active in Disaster), our goal was to provide both immediate basic needs relief and long term recovery in Manitowoc County.

As of November 17, our COVID-19 Basic Needs Relief Fund has received contributions totaling $92,827 from generous individual donors, our corporate partners - Americollect, Associated Bank, Festival Foods, Meijer, Sargento, UnitedOne Credit Union, and the Wisconsin Public Service Foundation - and United Way Manitowoc County's endowment. We thank you all for your generosity and support!

 

Donations to our COVID-19 Basic Needs Relief Fund have been awarded in two grant phases. Funds were also used to create over 850 reusable face coverings for Manitowoc County nonprofits. 

Applications for our third and final phase of funding are now open. To read eligibility details and apply, click here. Applications are due by 5:00 pm on Friday, December 11
