The COVID-19 Response Fund for Northwest Arkansas was established to support local community members impacted by the novel coronavirus.
100% of your donation will provide relief to those left vulnerable by the pandemic in Northwest Arkansas.
Together, we will overcome this pandemic by making sure the most vulnerable among us are protected. Your generosity will help families and people in need access critical information and services like food, shelter, and more. 100% of your donation will provide relief to those left vulnerable by the pandemic.
Flexible resources will be provided for immediate, emerging, and long-term needs to organizations working with communities who are disproportionately impacted by coronavirus and the economic consequences of the outbreak. The fund is designed to complement the work of government and public health officials to address all aspects of the outbreak in Northwest Arkansas.
United Way of Northwest Arkansas will administer the fund. An advisory committee of local funders and community institutions working directly with impacted populations will oversee the application process.
