Erath County United Way (ECUW) is committed to ensuring that Erath County's most vulnerable families and individuals have the support they need to weather the COVID-19 crisis. Since 1971, ECUW has created sustainable solutions to the challenges facing our local community.

For this reason, ECUW has launched the Erath County COVID-19 Community Response Fund. To increase the impact of the fund, ECUW will match community donations up to $25,000. This fund will allow trusted local partner agencies and organizations to rapidly deploy needed resources that offer crucial support such as utility assistance, food vulnerability, housing assistance, and other needs as identified. The ECUW Community Impact Committee will oversee the funding process. While the fund is not able to provide grants to individuals, it is funding partner agencies and organizations that have experience and history providing people and families with service and support.

“We understand that COVID-19 has disrupted lives in our community. As an organization whose entire mission is to mobilize community resources to help people improve their lives, we feel it is our duty to work proactively to raise funds for those in this emergency situation,” says Staci King , ECUW President. “As the long-term impacts unfold, we will continue to work with our partners to assess and evolve our funding strategies.”
