First round of funds from COVID-19 emergency relief fund released to local nonprofits
United Way of Frederick County announced Friday the first round of payments to nonprofits from its COVID-19 emergency relief fund in collaboration with community philanthropists.
The campaign, in which The Frederick News-Post is a promotional partner, raised more than $150,000 in less than a week, after an initial goal of $100,000. After initially anticipating disbursing the first checks a few weeks after the launch of the fund, the response to the campaign allowed payments to made sooner than expected.
In cooperation with the Ausherman Family Foundation, Delaplaine Foundation, Helen J. Serini Foundation and Women’s Giving Circle, the first round of funding releases $172,700 to the local nonprofit sector.
