The State of Michigan is collecting donations to address the most pressing needs of Michigan residents during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Monetary donations to Michigan’s COVID-19 Response and Recovery Initiative will support critical services for Michiganders impacted by the pandemic. Funds will be distributed through the State Emergency Operations Center established process, based on critical needs. Funds may be allocated to provide food and water, education support for children, and other essential activities as more needs are identified. Donating to the State of Michigan will help leverage federal resources, including FEMA funds, that require a match.
Donations of any size can be made by credit/debit card. If your donation exceeds $25,000 and you wish to discuss the processing of your contribution, contact the Michigan Community Service Commission at COVID19donations@michigan.gov or 517-335-4295. In the interests of personal privacy, personally identifiable information provided in the making of a donation will be withheld from public disclosure to the extent permitted by law.
