Coming off the heels of a successful 2015 campaign, Wyoming County United Way had funds still remaining after their annual allocations process to its partner agencies. For the second year in a row, the volunteers decided to offer a 1-time funding opportunity to all 501(c)3 organizations in Wyoming County. “This one-time funding can help our agencies do something special or make improvements that they would not normally be able to afford, which can make a big difference to a program or the services it provides.
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.
After the conclusion of the 2015 campaign, United Way volunteers worked diligently to distribute money raised back to the community. The fund distribution process was open to any 501(c)3 who services Wyoming County. Eligible agencies were required to submit a grant application which was reviewed by a committee of community volunteers. For proposals to be considered, the funds must be used to help improve health and human service needs for Wyoming County residents.
Once again, the Wyoming County United Way surpassed its goal and set a new record by raising $710,416 to help people in need.
Come join us at the Wyoming County United Way Campaign 2015 Celebration. The event will be held on Thursday, January 28th at 5:30 PM at Sherwood Chevrolet . Hors d'oeuvres from Twigs and Nimble Hill beverages will be served. To RSVP, please call the United Way office (570) 836-1661 by January 22nd.
Thanks again to P&G for topping your United Way fundraising record for the seventh straight year! This year through the generosity of their employees, retirees, and a P&G corporate match, $535,000 was raised for United Ways in NEPA. Wyoming County United Way will be receiving $148,041 from the employee & retiree contributions plus additional funding from the corporate match.
If you have already sent in your pledge for the 2015 campaign, we thank you! If you have not donated yet, please join us to help Wyoming County residents have the building blocks for a good life: Education, Income, and Health. A good education leads to a good job with solid benefits. An income covers today’s needs with savings for tomorrow and solidifies a family’s foundation. Good health helps children succeed at school and adults at work. Remove one building block and the other two tumble. Build them all up and we have a strong foundation for collective success.
The Wyoming County United Way has begun its 2016 grant application process, where agencies can apply for funding for programs for next year.
This funding opportunity is open to all 501(c)3 health and human service agencies that serve Wyoming County and help make an impact in the areas of Education, Income, and Health. Non-partner agencies are encouraged to apply at this time. Qualified agencies must complete and submit an application and all supporting documentation. Grant applications are due by 4:00 PM on November 2, 2015.
