Deloitte Donates $100,000 to Coronavirus Fund

As the coronavirus pandemic continues to challenge the nation, people and organizations have come together to meet it head-on. Here in North Texas, another company has joined forces with United Way of Metropolitan Dallas—Deloitte has donated $100,000 to our Coronavirus Response & Recovery Fund.

“At Deloitte, we strive to help lead the North Texas community toward a stronger economy and a healthier society,” said Dan Berner, North Texas Managing Partner, Deloitte. “Together with United Way of Metropolitan Dallas, we want to provide those most vulnerable with the immediate resources they need to weather this crisis and prove resilient.”

Since launching in mid-March, the Coronavirus Response & Recovery Fund has invested more than $3.2 million in 234 nonprofit organizations providing critical resources to the community.

“Gifts like this will not only help us respond to this crisis, but rebuild our community at this unprecedented time,” said Jennifer Sampson, McDermott-Templeton President and CEO of United Way of Metropolitan Dallas. “We’re grateful to Deloitte and all our partners for helping us meet both immediate and long-term needs of North Texans.”

About the United Way of Metropolitan Dallas Coronavirus Response & Recovery Fund
The United Way of Metropolitan Dallas Coronavirus Response & Recovery Fund will address immediate needs of all North Texans—as well as longer-term challenges that will affect education, income and health outcomes across our community.

The fund will support current community impact concerns including:

  • Shortage of supplies to meet basic health and safety needs (paper goods, hand sanitizer, cleaning products and potentially food)
  • Extended closures of school, childcare, and after school programs, impacting children’s access to breakfast and lunch programs and parents’ ability to work
  • Immediate economic impact for many workers, particularly in the service, retail and travel industries

In the coming weeks, our organization will continue to work with community leaders, including the Dallas County Health Department, school districts and our service partners to identify resource and service gaps and plan for long-term recovery.
