2017 Program Grants
The United Way is pleased to issue its 2017 call for grants applications.
Through annual fundraising campaigns, United Way Bruce Grey (UWBG) raises hundreds of thousands of dollars within our community. Those undesignated monies that become available for distribution become part of our Community Fund – which is re-invested locally to address social service issues.
Community Impact Special Project Grants – one-time funding for community agencies
This funding allows any registered charitable organization in our community, which meet our funding criteria, to apply. Other practical capacity-building support is offered to registered charities that apply for funding.
All United Way funds are distributed according to our Three Priority Areas:
- From poverty to possibility –We are looking for initiatives that meet people’s basic needs for food, shelter and safety; as well as those that ensure individuals have opportunities to seek stable and sufficient employment, and make education, training and learning opportunities affordable and accessible for all.
- Healthy people, strong communities –We are looking for initiatives that reduce barriers and isolation for those with addictions and mental-health issues through counselling, referrals, rehabilitation and other services. As well, services that support seniors, and individuals with physical, intellectual and emotional disabilities are ideal.
- All that kids can be – We are looking for organizations that are supporting the healthy growth and development of young people. This means actively targeting the source of their challenges and working to address systemic issues.
