United We Stand Fund

United We Stand Fund

United Way of Broome County has launched the United We Stand Fund. The Fund’s primary purpose is to rapidly deploy flexible resources to non-profit agencies and other charitable organizations in Broome County that are addressing the critical needs of those impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

United Way of Broome County is committed to standing with our community and supporting those impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak. Health and human service organizations are experiencing an unprecedented demand for services from those impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. These organizations must have the resources they need to continue to operate at the highest capacity. To ensure we have the most impact, we must support organizations in rebuilding and re-envisioning a “new normal” that results in a more equitable and resilient community.

The United We Stand Fund will provide aid to frontline human service organizations working within our local community to combat the outbreak’s emergent and economic consequences. Alongside our foundational strategies of Health, Education, Financial Stability, and Basic Needs, the United We Stand Fund will support innovative solutions to meet the community’s most urgent needs.
