The United Way of the Blue Mountains is accepting requests for LIVE UNITED Mini-Grants, from $500 to $2500, to support specific programs of small local nonprofits that are targeted at CHANGING THE STORY for families and children in the Columbia and Walla Walla counties.
These LIVE UNITED Mini-Grants provide a simplified funding process for programs or events that serve our community. These grants offer financial support to agencies and are not the same as United Way’s Community Grants.
Please read through the information provided below for guidelines and the timetable. Only completed applications received by the deadline (12 noon, October 31, 2019) will be considered.
Mini-Grant awards are contingent upon available funding. Applicants must be able to clearly demonstrate the intended use of funds in a budget format. United Way of the Blue Mountains reserves the right to reject or reduce an applicant’s requested amount.
Grants will be awarded to support community programs and services that focus on Health, Education, and Financial Stability in support of families and the developmental needs of children. Preference will be given to nonprofit organizations that do not currently receive funding via the United Way allocations process.
United Way of the Blue Mountains will only consider funding applicants that meet the following criteria:
• Programming and/or events must focus on Health, Education, or Financial Stability in support of families and the developmental needs of children.
• Organization must be a tax-exempt 501 (c) (3) organization at the time of application. If tax- exempt status has been applied for but not yet granted, United Way of the Blue Mountains will not accept the application for funding.
• Organization must have a physical location in and/or serve the residents of Walla Walla and/or Columbia counties.
