Coming off the heels of a successful 2014 campaign, Wyoming County United Way had funds still remaining after their annual allocations process to its partner agencies. The volunteers worked hard trying to decide the best way to get this funding out into the community. It was decided to offer a 1-time funding opportunity to all 501(c)3 organizations in Wyoming County. “Our top priority is always making sure we are funding high quality and needed programs in our community.
Wyoming County United Way is seeking proposals for a one-time grant opportunity. For proposals to be considered, funds must be used to help improve health and human services for Wyoming County residents. Requests can include, but are not limited to, organizing an educational opportunity, community awareness activities, facility improvements, matching funds, program start-up costs, etc.… Funding is open to all registered 501(c)3 organizations. Funding is limited, however, program requests for any amount will be considered.
The Wyoming County United Way recently established a sustaining endowment at The Community Foundation of the Endless Mountains. This permanent endowment will provide annual support to the United Way for its operational and administrative expenses so that more proceeds donated to the United Way may be directly used for its charitable and community activities.

Problems in a region cannot be solved without a deep understanding of the community in which we live. To gain knowledge of a community it’s not only through understanding research data, but also listening to and hearing from the people who live there. To do so, we need to have conversations where people share what they want to see in a community and the challenges that face them and others.
