Partnerships & Collaborations

COVID-19 Response Emergency Relief Fund

United Way created the COVID-19 Response Emergency Relief Fund in order to partner with nonprofits to ensure there were direct services being provided like child care, food, and housing & utility assistance in place- while keeping an eye on future unmet and emerging needs. We are focused on ensuring support for those families that have been hardest hit.

Partnerships & Funding:

Did you know that the Jackson County United Way benefits annually from a fund administered by the Community Foundation of Jackson County? Your gifts to help grow that fund – and therefore the annual grants -- may be made to the Jackson County United Fund Inc. Endowment. Gifts may take the form of a memorial for a loved one or friend. They can mark milestones in the lives of your family and friends. And they can be part of your estate planning. Earnings from your gifts to the fund – or perhaps through an endowment you choose to start – can benefit the Jackson County United Way year after year. For information about how you can donate now or through planned giving, call Foundation President Dan Davis at 812-523-4483.
