United Way of Jackson County and the Jackson Community Foundation jointly launched a new fund to help the community deal with the effects of the COVID-19 outbreak and the steps taken to slow the disease’s spread. We’re working with the Jackson COVID-19 Action Team (local service agencies and community leaders) to identify the biggest needs and how to best respond.  We anticipate those needs will include:

1. Meet current basic needs of vulnerable residents.
2. Ensure nonprofits and human service agencies remain strong and stable.
3. Meet long-term recovery needs of this outbreak.

The purpose of this survey is to gauge the needs of nonprofits that we may be able to assist with our limited financial resources. Please complete this survey to the best of your ability. If you need help or have any questions, please contact Ebone' Worthey, Community Solutions Manager at United Way of Jackson County by email at eworthey@uwjackson.org or call 517-914-6561.

***Completion of this survey does not guarantee you will receive funds.  We are simply gauging the level of need from organizations that we may be able to assist with our limited funds. We may follow up with you for additional information.***
