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.

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.
