The Chicago Community COVID-19 Response Fund was launched by The Chicago Community Trust and United Way of Metro Chicago in collaboration with the City of Chicago. The Fund was created to unite the funds raised by the Chicago region’s philanthropic community to support local nonprofit organizations providing essential resources to the neighborhoods and populations hardest hit during the pandemic. Through the generosity of a coalition of public and private sector funders, including foundations, businesses, Chicago’s sports teams and more than 5,000 individual donors, the funds raised more than $35 million to aid coordinated community response efforts, including food and supply access, cash assistance, mental health services and broadband internet access.
