The United Way of Genesee County began accepting donations in late September 2015. As of May 31, 2016 this fund has raised $3,191,957. This fund is set up for the purchase of filters, bottled water, emergency support services and prevention/intervention efforts. 100% of the fund is used for these projects and no Administrative Fee is assessed. After the short-term need of Flint residents has been met, any remaining funds will be directed to the Flint Child Health and Development Fund of the Community Foundation of Greater Flint.
