DUE: JANUARY 15, 2025

Does my organization have to be located in Clark, Champaign or Madison Counties?

Nonprofit organizations are invited to apply in each of our three counties, as long as they have a presence in that county. To be eligible for funding, nonprofits must serve residents in one of our three counties. The organization's headquarters does not have to be located in Clark, Champaign & Madison counties, but its program(s) must serve those who live in one of the three counties.

Is my organization eligible to apply for funding?

All applicant organizations must serve the residents of Clark, Champaign & Madison Counties. The applicant organizations must be exempt from income taxes as determined by the Internal Revenue Code, under section 501(c)3. Applicant organizations must have a governing board and provide services without discrimination.

What is the Grant Funding Cycle and how does it work?

The Grant Funding Cycle starts with raising money through the Annual Campaign.  Then, local organizations apply for funding.  Once the application deadline arrives, the applications are reviewed, evaluated and discussed by local community volunteers who then recommend the allocations to the board.  The allocation recommendation must be approved through the United Way of Clark, Champaign & Madison Counties' Board of Directors.

How is the funding for each program determined?

Each year, United Way has an Annual Campaign where funds are raised for the Grant Funding Cycle and nonprofits designated by donors.  All funds raised in a county, stay in that county and are allocated accordingly.  From the United Way Annual Campaign, funds that are not already designated by donors are allocated to nonprofits through the Grant Funding Cycle.  Applications are reviewed, evaluated and discussed by local community volunteers who then recommend the allocations to the board.  The allocation recommendation must be approved through the United Way of Clark, Champaign & Madison Counties' Board of Directors. The nonprofits who receive a grant are selected from the group of applicants based on their programs and application.  

When will funding decisions be sent out?

Early June, those organizations that are selected to receive funds will be sent a Grant Agreement and those are due back to United Way by June 30th.
