United Way of Central Maryland has joined forces with a group of seven other funders to launch the COVID-19 Response Funding Collaborative of Greater Baltimore, a streamlined opportunity for nonprofit organizations to apply for funding to sustain, deepen, or pivot their operations to address critical needs in local communities resulting from the pandemic. Together, these philanthropic organizations and families have committed to deploying $1.2 million to meet a wide range of urgent challenges communities are facing.
For more information on the Collaborative, and to apply for funding, please visit this website:

Funding is available for non-profits serving Baltimore City and Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Carroll and Harford Counties. This emergency response funding opportunity will be open until May 29, 2020 and grant awards will be made on a rolling basis.

Following this application period, the Collaborative will provide updates regarding additional/emerging funding priorities that our communities will be facing at that time.


United Way of Central Maryland has joined forces with the Community Foundation of Howard County, Horizon Foundation, and Women’s Giving Circle of Howard County to raise and distribute funds to nonprofits organizations who are supporting community members affected by COVID-19 in Howard County.

The first phase of this response is designed to get funding to non-profits who need it quickly. The funding application is open from April 6th to midnight on April 10th at midnight.
