How Can You Help
Give to the COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund
From now until on March 31, 2020, at 5 p.m., any gifts given through this website or via check, will go towards critical needs in response to Coronavirus relief in Erie County.
The Erie Community Foundation with our partners Erie Insurance, United Way of Erie County, Hamot Health Foundation, Highmark/AHN Saint Vincent, and the Housing Authority of the City of Erie has launched the COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund with $310,000 in lead gifts. You can add to the fund with a gift of $25 or more to help your neighbors and your community. Every dollar matters during this unprecedented time. Together, we can overcome.
Who Will Benefit
After consulting with nonprofit, government and grant making colleagues, the funds raised for the COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund will support Erie County nonprofits that:
- Provide food to those in need
- Administer care of our children
- Serve the elderly, who are the most vulnerable population to COVID-19
- Help those suffering from hardships and job loss due to the COVID-19
