Impact Partners

United Way awards grants to vetted local programs and organizations that impact our whole community, or a whole population within our community, while focusing on building resilience and decreasing childhood trauma. Our Community Impact Partners are organizations that apply through a competitive RFP (request for proposals) process for funds to support programs in three specific areas: basic needs, which make up our community’s safety net, prevention and development, which strengthen our community, and transformational initiatives that create social change by addressing childhood trauma or Adverse Childhood Experience (ACEs) and build resilience. By focusing on trauma, United Way addresses education, income, and health by addressing a root cause that affects all of these impact areas.
