how you can help
The COVID-19 Response Fund supports members of our Interior Community who are struggling in the economic fallout from the pandemic. Donations will rapidly be deployed to nonprofit agencies working to provide food, shelter, and other basic human necessities throughout the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic.
100% of the dollars contributed to this emergency response fund will go directly to organizations providing services. Design Alaska has generously offered to pay all credit processing fees to help make this possible!
Please use the donation form on this page, or send a check to PO Box 74396, Fairbanks, AK, 99707. If you do choose to send a check, please send us a quick message so that we can add your donation to the total immediately.
As of 5/21 at 5:00 PM, the fund is at $95,560!

This pandemic is a new challenge for us, but the community spirit required in response is not. For more than 65 years, the United Way of the Tanana Valley, local nonprofit agencies, and generous community members have faced crisis head-on, doing whatever is required to comfort and care for those in need. You can do the same.
Although social distancing separates us physically, we are still as connected to each other as ever. And we still have the power—as we did in days of old—to come together in hope and in generosity, to act when duty calls, to give with open hands and an open heart. Thank you.
