Grants avail­able from United Way

The Compass - - ORTHTE -

United Way of New­found­land and Labrador has is­sued its an­nual call for pro­pos­als for com­mu­nity gund grants.

Reg­is­tered char­i­ties are in­vited to sub­mit pro­pos­als sup­port­ing the im­pact ar­eas iden­ti­fied by United Way of New­found­land and Labrador. The fund­ing is made avail­able due to the sup­port of in­di­vid­u­als and or­ga­ni­za­tions through­out the province dur­ing United Way’s 2012 work­place cam­paign.

Agen­cies can ap­ply un­der ei­ther of three iden­ti­fied fo­cus ar­eas:

• From poverty to pos­si­bil­ity — mov­ing peo­ple out of poverty, and meet­ing ba­sic hu­man needs (ex: food, shel­ter & jobs);

• Healthy peo­ple, strong com­mu­ni­ties — im­prov­ing ac­cess to so­cial and health-re­lated sup­port ser­vices; sup­port­ing res­i­dent and com­mu­nity en­gage­ment; and sup­port­ing com­mu­nity in­te­gra­tion and set­tle­ment;

• All that kids can be — im­prov­ing ac­cess to early child­hood learn­ing and devel­op­ment pro­grams; help­ing kids do well at school and com­plete high school; and mak­ing the healthy tran­si­tion into adult­hood and post­sec­ondary ed­u­ca­tion.

Ap­pli­ca­tion dead­line is 4 p.m. Fri­day, April 26.

All pro­pos­als will be re­viewed by United Way’s Com­mu­nity In­vest­ment Com­mit­tee. Rec­om­men­da­tions will be brought to the board of direc­tors for ap­proval in July 2013.

Since its launch in New­found­land and Labrador in 2005, United Way of New­found­land and Labrador’s Com­mu­nity Fund has di­rectly in­vested over $2.5 mil­lion in 151 Reg­is­tered Char­i­ties lo­cated in var­i­ous com­mu­ni­ties through­out our province. This is in ad­di­tion to al­most $1.5 mil­lion in­vested in char­i­ta­ble or­ga­ni­za­tions through United Way’s Donor Choice ser­vice.
