DEADLINE FOR APPLICATION: FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 2017
Thank you for your interest in United Way of Mineral County grants. In our application you will find requests for information that are going to be vital to United Way during the campaign season each fall. If you have any questions regarding this application please do not hesitate to ask.
United Way of Mineral County, like other local United Ways, is going through a re-positioning that has been set forth by United Way Worldwide. As a result, United Way Worldwide is focusing our efforts into three focus areas: Education, Income and Health. United Way of Mineral County is now asking that agencies define their programs within these three focus areas.
Furthermore, we are looking for programs that have measurable outcomes. Programs for which you are applying for funding need to make a measurable impact on those residents using the services. So, please think about what outcomes result from the use of these programs (i.e. kindergarten preparedness, financial literacy, financial literacy, budget management, healthy lifestyles and choices, drug awareness and prevention).
Collaboration with other organizations in the community is strongly suggested and will be looked upon favorably.
