UWNIL Community COVID-19 Response Fund

Donate to the United Way of Northwest Illinois Community COVID-19 Response Fund

As always, we have witnessed our community come together to support our local businesses and community members as we go through this new and ever evolving landscape of this health crisis together. We ask that you consider helping us ensure that the organizations who provide community support to our most vulnerable, are able to continue providing their day to day services as well as meet the additional demand being placed on each of them throughout this trying time. Please note that 100% of your gift will go to support the local 501c3 social service agencies who have been operating in our area with the expertise to meet the basic and emerging needs of our community.
