Covid-19 Community Assistance Fund


Galilee is a church that helps people.

In that spirit, we’ve established a Covid-19 Community Assistance Fund in order to help anyone in our congregation or local community who has been directly affected by the coronavirus crisis.

The fund will run in tandem with our Pastor’s Discretionary Fund, which is a long-running fund maintained to support people in life’s crisis moments.



In establishing this fund, Pastor Jason Duley says, “The effects of Covid-19 will be economic, as well as physical. Some of the effects will be ongoing for a considerable time. If you feel led to give, above and beyond your regular giving, I’d be so grateful.”

“We’ll be doing this all year.,” Pastor Jason explains. “So I hope you, like me, will feel *extraordinarily blessed* to be part of a church that is generous, above and beyond. Galilee always steps up when there is a need. And this season, during this health crisis, we will continue to give.”

To donate to the Covid-19 Community Assistance Fund, just write “Covid Fund” in the memo of your check mailed and payable to Galilee UMC, 45425 Winding Road, Sterling VA 20165 or select “COVID Relief Fund” when choosing your designation at our online giving platform.
