COVID-19 Impact Fund

The COVID-19 Impact Fund channels the community's generosity to residents and local service agencies that are most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, including many people who have never before needed financial help. Laid-off workers, business owners who were forced to temporarily shut their doors, self-quarantined residents, struggling families and seniors need support now to pay rent, get food, pay bills and secure basic necessities. All funds raised will go directly to those in need.

We have received several matching donation pledges by generous local organizations and individuals. If you donate today, your donation will be matched dollar-for-dollar!

Shop at smile.amazon.com to Benefit Local Businesses

During the COVID-19 crisis, if you can't shop locally, you can still support our local businesses.  Local businesses are the backbone of our community and have contributed over the years to our causes.  If you do your online shopping at smile.amazon.com, the Amazon Foundation will donate .5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice. If you designate "United Way of Acton-Boxborough, Inc." as your charity of choice, we will donate all funds raised through AmazonSmile during COVID-19 to local business owners, their families or employees in need. Together we can!
