The United Way of Cayuga County works to ensure the health, education, and financial stability of every person in our community. And, as such, the well-being, safety, and long-term stability of our partners, staff, and neighbors remains a critical priority for us. To that end, we are committed to supporting Cayuga County though the challenges and consequences of the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak by establishing a short-term mini grant program.
This program is designed as a flexible short-term response fund to provide relief for a variety of unexpected costs. The first round of grants will support front-line community-based nonprofits that have seen increased demand for services due to the coronavirus outbreak. These nonprofits will already have deep roots in the community along with a proven record of serving people who are immediately and disproportionately impacted by current events.

Mini grants will range from $500 to $5,000 and be awarded on a rolling basis. More information and how to apply will be available this week on the organization’s web site.
Donations to the fund can be made by sending a check to the United Way at 2 State Street, Suite 2, Auburn, NY 13021 or via PayPal. One hundred percent of donations will go to the fund.
