We award grants to vetted local nonprofits that focus on health, education, prevention and development, financial stability, basic needs, childhood trauma, community transformation, and building resilience.
This year, we awarded $309,000 to these 21 local programs. These are our Community Impact Partners.
Each year we issue a grant application for local nonprofits to apply.
“Support from United Way has allowed us to keep our service free and available to all children in the Central Oregon. United Way’s continued support has been critical for our Rural Advocate Program expansion. Through United Way, we have deepened our assessments to include gathering data on how parents of young children are building resiliency and staying connected.”
“United Way of Deschutes County helps ensure that children impacted by child abuse receive child-friendly evaluations, family support, and therapy, at no cost, so that all a family has to worry about is their child’s healing. These services are vital to restoring health, happiness, and resiliency for children and their families so that they can live life to their fullest potential.”
“United Way of Deschutes County continues to be instrumental in helping Friends of the Children Central Oregon implement an evidence based model to build resilience in children who are facing the highest levels of trauma. Together, we are breaking the cycle of generational poverty.”
It’s a credo. A mission. A goal. A constant reminder that when we reach out a hand to one, we influence the condition of all. We build the strength of our neighborhoods. We bolster the health of our communities. And we change the lives of those who walk by us every day.
