2019-2020 Program Grant Overview

Background:

Strategic Planning 2018:

In early 2018, United Way of Waco-McLennan County (UWWMC) underwent a strategic planning process which outlined our commitment to the individuals and families of Waco-McLennan County.  The process was heavily guided by community partners to ensure we captured the community’s perspective on ways to best support local residents. Through that community-based work, UWWMC articulated a vision statement, values and community commitments to support our mission, as well as strategic goals, and an Impact Framework that outlined priority areas for future funding.

Inclusive, High-Impact Grant-making:

Our Strategic Plan’s goal in Community Impact, defined the way that we would steward donor dollars to support high-impact programs in Waco-McLennan County, using the Impact Framework and new guiding Values as guides.
