United Way grant funding
GLOVERSVILLE — The applications for the United Way program funding for the 2021-2022, fiscal year will be available via e-mail, or in their Gloversville offices, starting on April 5, according to a news release.
The United Way of Fulton County continues its work to build a stronger community, creating opportunities for everyone by focusing on the three basic building blocks of a good life — education, income and health. The input from community members, contributors and others affirm the value our community places on these issues.
To be considered for funding, agencies must qualify as tax exempt under federal law and cannot discriminate because of race, color, religion, sex, age, marital status, national origin, political affiliation, or disability. The agency applicants must actively provide programs or services in Fulton County.
A complete list of funding qualifications is available at the United Way of Fulton County offices, and is included in the Application for Funding packets.
An Allocations and Agency Relations committee consisting of volunteer members skilled in finance, management, and accounting will review the information submitted with the proposal package, and assist in making recommendations to the board of directors for United Way funding.
The first time applicants, requesting funding assistance from the UWFC, may be requested to give a presentation of advocacy to the committee to be considered. The agency presentations will be heard in June, and applications will be reviewed for recommendation in July, for submission to the UWFC BOD in August for final approval.
