Off-Cycle Funding Opportunities
In order to respond to unanticipated needs and/or investment opportunities that do not align with the two-year funding cycle, our Board has authorized three situations in which money for off-cycle funding may be allocated.
The UWCC board is explicit that off-cycle funding is NOT a way to circumvent the two year funding cycle, which is the main way that allocable funding is distributed and quality control is exercised, nor should the funding be seen as unrestricted discretionary funds.
United Way of Champaign County's funding guidelines are specific. We do not provide funds to individuals, political institutions, school fundraisers, capital campaigns, capital items, endowments, sponsorships, marketing opportunities, event fundraisers or sports events.
