What Does it Mean to be a United Way Partner Agency?
Any organization listed as a Partner Agency is an organization that was approved for quarterly grant funding from our United Way. That approval is determined through an application review and interview process, led by the United Way board of directors and multiple community volunteers. The United Way board of directors determines the final grant allocations.
Who Can Apply to be a Partner Agency?
Any LOCAL organization that maintains nonprofit status, that provides programs/services related to education/health/financial stability to local clients, and that completes our annual application process, including the submission of financial statements and documents.
Why Would an Organization NOT be Listed as Partner Agency?
There are only three reasons a local organization would not be listed as a United Way Partner Agency: 1) they did not complete an annual application, 2) they did not meet the requirements to become a partner agency, or 3) the review team and/or United Way board of directors had concerns over the information in the application or financial statements and did not feel comfortable allocating donor dollars to the organization.
