COVID-19 Disaster Response Fund

The Winnebago County COVID-19 Disaster Response Fund provides support to organizations assisting in the response and recovery efforts of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. The intent of the fund is to be responsive to nonprofits serving Winnebago County that are providing basic needs services and organizations working with individuals and families who have been disproportionately impacted by the public health and economic consequences of the coronavirus pandemic. 


This fund has been established to support local response efforts. Online donations can be made or fundholders can grant from their charitable fund.

Donate to the Fund


Our goal is to support our nonprofit partners serving those impacted by this pandemic. Funds will be released on a rolling basis as fundraising continues throughout the outbreak and recovery phases of this crisis .
