Grants & Impact


High-Impact Grant Making:

Our goal for Community Impact guides our efforts to steward donor dollars for grant making that supports high-impact programs that measurably impact the community’s most critical needs. Our Impact Framework defines anticipated community outcomes in each of our program pillar areas: education, health, financial stability and safety net services. 

Grant Process Phases

  • Eligibility Process
  • Application Phase
  • Financial Review Council and Community Investment Council Review & Funding Recommendations
  • Impact & Engagement Committee and Board Approval
  • Funded Partnership

“As a United Way CIC member, I’ve had the opportunity to champion the way forward at increasing the equity in grant-making. Collectively, we strive to move the dial in a direction whereby funded programs are representative of the communities they serve.”
