Community Impact Fund Grant applications are not currently available.
The Fiscal Year 2019-2020 Community Impact Fund Grant Cycle opened October 11, 2017 with a Letter of Intent Training. Announcement of final grant awards will be April 27, 2018.
We anticipate our next funding cycle will open with a Letter of Intent in Fall 2019.
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.
FRAUD ALERT: An online scam is using our brand to swindle people. In each case, someone claiming to work for United Way reaches out to congratulate potential victims on “being eligible for a cash grant.” You will never be contacted by United Way with an unsolicited grant offer. It is highly unusual for any charity to do this. We will never ask for sensitive personal information (e.g. banking information, social media passwords, etc.) in exchange for a "cash grant". If you get an offer like this, please call your local United Way immediately – before providing any information.
