Agency applications due Friday, Oct. 8
The United Way of Logan County is extending the opportunity for human service organizations to apply for status as a United Way Funded Agency and to receive allocations in 2022.
All documentation must be submitted online by 11:59 p.m. Friday, Oct. 8.
A recipient organization does not have to be a 501c3 organization, as long as the funding partnership advances the mission of United Way, which is to fight for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in Logan County.
Funding priority will be given to programs that align with United Way’s Strategic Plan and the 2021 Community Needs Assessment. As such, programs should have an emphasis on one or more of the following:
• Address mental health;
• Reduce the negative impact of substance abuse in Logan County;
• Provide long-term, coordinated help for people with rent, utilities and affordable housing;
• Strengthen and stabilize the local workforce;
• Promote healthy living;
• Reduce poverty and increase self-sufficiency and financial wellness;
• Keep children safe and healthy;
• Serve the aging population; or
• Provide access to resources.
Applications are only available online at www.uwlogan.org. United Way support should be sought to cover cost of programming, and cannot be used for management, general or fundraising functions.
In 2021, 41 programs of 32 funded agencies are receiving allocations from this process. The average program allocation was $17,707. The largest allocation was for $50,000. The smallest allocation was for $260.
Eighteen additional organizations have received one-time grant funds since the start of the year. The United Way operates eight additional programs internally to benefit the community.
A complete breakdown of 2021 allocations is available at www.uwlogan.org/united-way-funded-agencies.
