- United Way Targets Important Community Issues for Grant Making

United Way of Southwest Minnesota continues to target important community issues for its 2013 Community Impact grants.  The primary focus for its priority areas, Goals for the Common Good, are to support the building blocks for a good quality of life-education, income and health.  Within that framework more specific emphasis is given to issues of reducing hunger and increasing safety and well-being for people in this area.

 

United Way of Southwest Minnesota volunteers developed and refined these priority areas through community listening sessions, surveys, research and awareness of community conditions. 

 

United Way of Southwest Minnesota continues a strong emphasis on building school readiness and early childhood education through its Success By 6 initiative, as well as through community impact grant-making. 

 

Funding for all community impact grants was generated through the recently completed annual fund-raising campaign. 

 

More information about the United Way of Southwest Minnesota community impact priorities is available clicking here.  Grant applications are available by clicking here.

 

Two informational grant workshops to review the grant priorities and the grant application process have been set for Friday, March 8, 1:00 PM and for Monday, March 11, 4:00 PM.  Both workshops will be held at the United Way of Southwest Minnesota office, 109 S. 5th Street, Suite 300, Marshall, MN.  The Community Impact Grant deadline is 5:00 PM, April 1, 2013.

 

United Way of Southwest Minnesota is a local, autonomous organization that works to improve the education, income and health of people living within the communities of Lincoln, Lyon, Murray, Yellow Medicine and western Redwood Counties of Minnesota.
