Grants available from United Way
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.
