The Fort Dodge Community Foundation and United Way has established a Disaster Response Fund to address needs in Fort Dodge and Webster County in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This fund was created to support disaster response and relief efforts by government and human service agencies in
Fort Dodge and Webster County. Working in partnership with the
Webster County Emergency Operations Committee (EOC),
the fund will be in position to rapidly deploy resources to address community needs created by the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
As our community and its most vulnerable populations face the effects and impact of COVID-19, the Disaster Relief Fund will provide an opportunity for the public to give with the assurance that their charitable donations will be used to quickly move resources to where they are most needed
and to adapt to evolving needs. The flexibility of the fund will ensure that the Fort Dodge community will be able to respond to needs that are not able to be met by
other federal, state and local funding sources.
The Fort Dodge Community Foundation
will match every donation
50 cents on every dollar donated up to a limit of $80,000;
the goal being to raise a minimum of $120,000 and possibly more.
