Where is the money going?

100% of all funds go directly into the community to provide food, shelter, childcare, sanitary and hygiene supplies, and financial assistance. With your generous support, $4.5 million has been contributed to the Greater Twin Cities COVID-19 Response & Recovery Fund to date with $2.8 million benefiting our local region. Several national corporations based in the Twin Cities are partnering with Greater Twin Cities United Way to distribute the remaining $1.7 million to other United Ways in markets where they have a presence.

We are mobilizing our broad network of nonprofit partners throughout the Greater Twin Cities to provide resources to help our community. These organizations have a proven track record of working with United Way to deliver urgent resources and services. Our fund is designed to support immediate needs and longer-term recovery efforts.

So far, $1.215 million has been released in under 2 months to 107 non-profit organizations addressing critical COVID-19 needs. We will continue to disburse funding in waves until late summer. Below is the list of grantees who have received funding.
