2018-2020 Community Fund Grants

Twin County United Way Community Fund Grants 2018-2020

Every other year, the Twin County United Way (TCUW) accepts applications for grants from our Community Fund. TCUW will accept applications in 2018 for the 2018-2020 funding cycle.

We invite 501(c)(3) organizations in Nez Perce County (Idaho) and Asotin County (Washington) interested in applying for funds from Twin County United Way to submit a  Statement of Intent_2018.  The Statement of Intent is due Monday, Jan. 22, 2018 at 10 a.m.  Statements can be submitted via e-mail (preferred), mailed, faxed or dropped off at the TCUW office.

Nonprofit organizations may apply for grants to fund multiple programs, but a Statement of Intent is required for each program.  Before submitting a Statement of Intent, nonprofits need to ensure programs fall within our TCUW Funding Areas_2018-2020.

The United Way focuses on what is needed most in our community and what is working locally to address these needs. Priorities for funding are determined from a combination of factors including: the results of community needs assessments conducted by Twin County United Way and other organizations; research by the United Way and others on issues impacting education, income and health; partner nonprofit input and available data. We also have specific impact goals and place a priority on funding programs that will help us achieve these goals.

Submitting a Statement of Intent is the first step in securing a grant from the United Way.  Other subsequent steps include submitting the application and presenting a program overview and answering questions about the program to a grant panel. Below is an overview of the steps and important dates:
