United Way goes beyond temporary fixes to create lasting change in communities around the world. By bringing people and organizations together around innovative solutions, we impact thousands of lives every year.
United Way advances the common good by creating opportunities for all. Our focus is on education, income, and health—the building blocks for a good quality of life.
United Way of Jefferson County is not currently accepting applications for funding. However, we offer grants focused on making an impact in the areas of Education, Income, and Health, in addition to numerous other opportunities to fill a gap or impact a critical issue.
The allocations process is the cornerstone of our United Way. It ensures fiscal and program accountability for all agencies receiving United Way funds while meeting the social services needs of our community. In the process, volunteers challenge each agency’s effectiveness in providing services, review the need for those services in the region, and analyze the impact of United Way funding in meeting those needs. When reviewing proposals from registered 501(c)(3) agencies, volunteers and United Way staff use the following selection criteria:
Location: Funding is restricted to Jefferson County.
Alignment: Programs must align with our organizational priorities, Education, Income, and Health.
Impact: Programming must be effective as reflected by evaluation efforts and outcomes.
Clients: Populations served should encompass people of all backgrounds and abilities. We take special note of the underprivileged, youth, and elderly.
We greatly appreciate your dedication and willingness to serve our community. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the United Way office.
