Serving Monroe, Owen, and Greene Counties

Working together to ensure a strong safety net

Working together to ensure a strong safety net
A Message from Executive Directior Efrat Feferman

Normally in April we'd be updating you about our annual fundraising campaign. But since this spring is like none other, in mid-March we quickly pivoted to support local COVID-19 efforts. Efrat Feferman, United Way of Monroe County, provides an update on how your support is making a positive difference for local people - right now - during this crisis.

Donations to the COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund from individual donors like you and organizations in our community allow us to quickly support non-profits as they continue to provide crucial services during the pandemic.

A big thanks in advance to those who have asked about sharing their stimulus checks through the COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund since they’re continuing to get paid but won’t actually need those funds.

The United Way COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund has granted over $300,000 to human service organizations serving people in Monroe, Owen, and Greene counties,  and donations continue to come in. To participate, click below.
