About the Fund
The goal of Worcester Together is to address immediate and long-term needs, complementing the work of public health officials and expanding local capacity to address the impact of this public health crisis on our region’s vulnerable populations. Grants will target organizations that have deep roots in the community and strong experience working with residents without health insurance and/or access to sick days, people with limited English language proficiency, healthcare and gig economy workers, our seniors neighbors, and communities of color, among others.
While this pandemic is unprecedented, our highest priority continues to be serving the needs of our community. The Foundation, the United Way, the City of Worcester, local officials throughout the County and other donor and philanthropies are all collaborating to give the Fund the optimal reach and exposure.

How You Can Help
The impact of COVID-19 is becoming more apparent each day as we see parents struggling to home-school their children, workers in the retail, transportation and food industries lose wages, many in the contingent workforce find themselves without work and pay, private drivers losing customers and the list goes on – as the nonprofit community struggles to support our most vulnerable families.
Your gift to Worcester Together will help our community and our neighbors get through this pandemic.
