Community Focus Grants

In General by James Miller

United Way of West Central Minnesota and the Willmar Area Community Foundation announce the 2017 – 2018 Community Focus Grant opportunity.

The United Way of West Central Minnesota (UWWCM) and the Willmar Area Community Foundation (WACF) unite people and resources to improve lives and strengthen communities in the Willmar Area and across west central Minnesota. As part of our grant funding portfolios, UWWCM and WACF have set aside funding for use during the fiscal year (July 1 through June 30) to provide small grants to eligible nonprofit organizations in our service area. The intent of the Community Focus Grant program is to provide support for community projects, programs or initiatives in need of a small, one-time grant that aligns with our Community Impact Priorities.

About Small Grants:
The Community Focus Grant is an outreach of the United Way’s Community Impact funding process and the Willmar Area Community Foundation’s Discretionary Funding. The available amount of grant dollars each year is subject to change. Grants, up to $3,000 will be awarded to organizations aligned with UWWCM and WACF’s priority areas of Education, Health, Basic Needs, Engaged Youth, Productive Aging, and Bridging Diverse Communities.

2017 – 2018 Deadlines are October 5th, 2017 and February 28th, 2018.
