Making Our Community Stronger
Leveraging our resources to fund collaborative, proven solutions for the most urgent challenges.
Give to United Way
Help us solve the 757’s biggest problems and give everyone the opportunity to thrive.
We believe in local solutions for local problems. An essential part of our approach is our volunteer Community Investments Committee. These volunteers ask the questions our supporters want answered. By using a thorough vetting process to select nonprofit partners, they ensure donations are used to solve our most urgent and challenging problems. In addition to pouring over 990s, audits, program details and results, volunteers hit the streets, visiting agencies to see the service for themselves before deciding where funding is invested.
2021/2022 Operational Support RFP
Our volunteer funding review panels have completed the application review process and received board approval of their proposed grant awards. Agencies will be notified of awards by mail by May 28, 2021 with the grant period starting July 1, 2021.
For Agency Partners
United Way’s grant opportunities will be offered primarily through Requests for Proposals (RFPs) released throughout the year to enable flexibility and responsiveness while promoting greater structure and cohesiveness. Across these opportunities, United Way volunteers aim to invest in direct services (including both essential services and program investments) and systems change because this two-pronged approach is crucial to tackling our community’s most complex challenges. If you are interested in learning more about our Community Investments and how to apply, please visit our Agency Resources page (coming soon).
Certification is a one-year classification – not a grant funding opportunity – that we offer to local nonprofits to demonstrate to the public that an agency has met a robust set of standards covering financial health, governance and performance accountability. Certified agencies has access to multiple benefits, and an agency must be certified to apply for a grant through our annual RFP process. The following are agencies that are currently certified:
