Pulling Together: Clallam COVID-19 Response Fund
(Non-Profits: Please apply for funding here)
To date 3/27/20, we have received $10,795 from 29 community of donors (in addition to the $100,000 from the United Way Foundation) and distributed $32,700 to 6 non-profits!
Thank you for helping make a difference! We are working to fund the most critical needs in our community related to COVID-19.

As an organization dedicated to the well-being of our community, United Way is closely watching the developments surrounding the spread of COVID-19. We are working with our many community partners and have established a fund, the Clallam COVID-19 Response Fund, to help minimize the impact of the outbreak. $100,000 has been added to this fund already and with your help, we will use 100% of your donations to support non-profits who are focused on health and human service needs in our community.
United Way of Clallam County is well positioned for this sort of rapid response, with volunteer-led groups focused on identifying needs year-round, coupled with staff expertise, we will be able to work with direct-service providers and get the dollars where they’re needed most. Depending on need, the Clallam COVID-19 Response Fund will support non-profits in a variety of ways including but not limited to, scholarships for childcare, food for food banks and other places providing free meals, and support for keeping people employed at non-profits that are providing direct services.
Our community is stronger when it is unified, and it is going to take all of us to mitigate the impacts and recover as a community. Your donation, of any amount, makes a difference and is vitally important because one gift to United Way can touch the lives of thousands of individuals and families.
This pandemic is a new challenge for us, but the community spirit required in response is not. Although social distancing separates us physically, we are still as connected to each other as ever. And we still have the power—as we did in days of old—to come together in hope and in generosity, to act when duty calls, to give with open hands and an open heart.
