If your organization offers a program that meets human service needs in our community, the United Way of Door County is now accepting applications to grant funds. They are opening up their Annual Community Investment process to any nonprofit organization that meets the needs of people in Door County and strengthens the United Way’s mission of “Empowering people to build better lives.”
When asked about the focus areas for programs to be considered for funding, Executive Director Amy Kohnle explained, “After extensive research, four critical areas of focus were identified by residents of Door County: Basic Needs, Community, Health Care and AODA (Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse). Each of these areas have multiple goals that we are committed to achieving through our funding process. Any qualified program in the community that can help achieve those goals, is strongly encouraged to apply.”
Applications are due June 30 prior to 11 pm. During July, applicants will meet with the volunteers who are on the Community Investment Committee to review their application. The amounts granted by this committee will then establish the amount of money that United Way will need to raise during their 2017 Campaign. The programs that are awarded grants will then receive their funds in monthly installments in 2018.
