Guadalupe County United Way Covid-19 Emergent Needs Response Fund

Guadalupe County United Way Covid-19 Emergent Needs Response Fund

 

GUADALUPE COUNTY COVID-19 RESPONSE FUND

We have established a fund to provide financial support to the citizens of Guadalupe County that are being hardest-hit due to work stoppage, reduced hours, closing of schools and daycare centers and to nonprofits in Guadalupe County for their extra-ordinary and unprecedented expenses related to Covid-19. Our social services nonprofits, which make up the core of our community safety net, provide for many basic needs, including food, clothing, and shelter (help with rent, mortgage, utilities). The fund we have created, Guadalupe County United Way Covid-19 Emergent Needs Response Fund, will provide microgrants to local nonprofits to help with these emergency expenses. The microgrants will be specific and for aiding Guadalupe County citizens with rent, mortgage payments, and utilities. Aid will be paid directly to landlords, mortgage companies, GVEC, and Seguin Utilities. The last thing we want is for one of our neighbors to be in danger of losing basic needs due to emergency measures being taken to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

What happens with the money I donate?

When you give to the Guadalupe County United Way, you are investing in programs making changes right here at home. For a list of the area agencies that this United Way helps to fund, please click here.

In the spring, a committee of volunteers meets with the agencies requesting funding, reviewing their programs and deciding how to best invest your contributions.
