United for Southern Arizona COVID-19 Fund

When we LIVE UNITED we accomplish more than any single entity can alone.

United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona is joining with our nonprofit partners, local foundations, businesses, media and educational organizations to launch United for Southern Arizona COVID-19 Fund to help those who need it most survive during this crisis.

Never has the need been greater for the most vulnerable people in our community. The children, families, and older people who are laid-off, unemployed, low-income, homeless, underinsured, and struggling to make ends meet are now facing even more hardship. More than 150,000 families and individuals in southern Arizona are challenged by work and school closures, wage disruptions and restricted access to basic needs.
