United Way of Southern Nevada stands in the center of the community, taking immediate steps to help Southern Nevada. We created the UWSN Emergency Assistance and Community Needs Fund to provide immediate basic needs through local nonprofits. We’ve brought together 200 nonprofits to help the thousands of people who need us, and matched volunteers with organizations that need their help. We can only continue this essential work with your help. Give today at uwsn.org/Donate.

Since the inception of the UWSN Emergency Assistance and Community Needs Fund in March 2020, UWSN has deployed $2.2 million to 34 local organizations providing support to individuals and families affected by COVID-19 in Southern Nevada.
