Applying for Funding
UWCNEO believes in a community where everyone can succeed. Our targeted investments reflect community conditions and are allocated where they are needed most, to have the greatest impact. These investment strategies support frontline programs and services, advocacy, and research.
UWCNEO’s funding review process ensures that donor dollars are invested for maximum impact. Experienced community volunteers, with the support of staff, review all applications, provide recommendations to our Allocations Committee, with final funding approval from the Board of Directors. The number of funded programs and allocated amounts are determined by dollars raised in the community.
Local, registered charitable organizations who are working to address poverty, building strong communities or helping kids be all they can be, are invited to apply for funding during designated funding timelines.
