Impact Grants

United Way is currently reviewing our grant process. Thank you all for your patience as we strive to make this process effective and effecient. We will be accepting a short RFP to review in October. Based on that review we will reach out and set up a time to meet with a UW Board member and/or UW Staff so we may discuss the new process.

Thank you

What is a Community Impact Grant?

A United Way Community Impact Grant helps our community program and service agencies Change the Odds for children and families in our community have an opportunity for a better life. Local organizations are given financial support to target root causes and find solutions to community needs.

Our goal is to align funding, volunteers, local agencies, government and grants with programs that work. Our donors expect their dollars to measurably improve the quality of people’s lives and build stronger communities. United Way is aligning its resources to goals targeted at positively changing community conditions.

United Way is recognized as a community leader that:

  • Identifies and builds on community strengths and assets
  • Helps individuals and groups with specific community interests find ways to contribute their time and talents
  • Supports programs and agencies that provide direct services to help individuals and families

We are encouraging local organizations to work collaboratively towards addressing root causes, and finding solutions to those community needs.
