United For Southern Arizona
COVID-19 Fund Updates
An unprecedented crisis requires an urgent and fluid response. Your United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona has joined with our nonprofit partners, local foundations, businesses, media and educational organizations to launch  United for Southern Arizona COVID-19 Fund   to help community members most in need to survive during this crisis. This fund is designed to be flexible to meet the emerging needs of people in this fast-changing environment. Together, we can help each other and our community emerges stronger than ever.

It has been less than a week since our official launch and because of the ingenuity and generosity of this community, the COVID-19 Fund has already mobilized to directly provide services and resources to our most vulnerable populations. THANK YOU to everyone who has given during this time of need.

Here are a few highlights from the past week:

  • Thanks to our amazing community's generosity, the United for Southern Arizona COVID-19 Fund has received commitments of approximately $400,000 on our original goal of $500,000!

  • United Way of Tucson has contracted with the following agencies to provide urgently needed services:
  • Catholic Community Services
  • Diaper Bank of Southern Arizona
  • Green Valley Assistance Services
  • Habitat for Humanity
  • Interfaith Community Services
  • La Frontera
  • Pima Council on Aging (PCOA)
  • Primavera
  • Sahuarita Food Bank
  • (more pending)

  • $165,000 of assistance has already been sent out to our partnered agencies and to people who need help now.

Upon partnering with us and receiving immediate assistance through the
COVID-19 Fund, Peg Harmon of Catholic Community Services told us, "These resources could not come at a better time." Your United Way of Tucson is committed to ensuring an efficient process that delivers fast results to get our community the help it needs right now. Thank you to everyone who has made a donation to the Fund during this challenging time; your life-saving contributions have gone to directly help Southern Arizona community members.

This crisis makes your support crucial to alleviate the financial hardship many are facing today. For nearly 100 years, your United Way of Southern Arizona has been fulfilling our mission of mobilizing the community to solve real-time problems. Your gift to this fund will quickly support a child, family, or older person with what is essential right now.  With our non-profit partners, United Way will continue to deliver emergency services and resources for individuals and families who need help today. When we LIVE UNITED, we can achieve more than any single entity can alone. When you GIVE UNITED, you can change lives.
