MONTICELLO, IN - In February and March, the White County United Way Community Relief Fund was able to significantly assist several local nonprofits that were in need due to the financial impacts caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. To date, the White County United Way Community Relief Fund has received a total of $436,438 to distribute to nonprofits in need, and awarded $51,278 to nonprofits in the three-county region in March alone.
The organizations that received assistance met basic needs, addressed childcare shortages, and adapted their programming to serve residents living in White, Jasper, or Pulaski counties. The application process is competitive, and requests are reviewed monthly by an advisory board made up of members of each county community, as well as leaders in the White County United Way, Community Foundation of White County, the Community Foundation of Pulaski County, and the Jasper Newton Foundation.
