November 29, 2012
United Way of Southwest Wyoming (UWSW) will be accepting grant applications for the 2013-2014 funding process from any tax exempt organization that serves residents in Lincoln, Sublette, Sweetwater or Uinta Counties.
Interested organizations will first need to upload a Letter of Intent (LOI) and required documents to the UWSW website no later than Friday, January 11, 2013 by 5 p.m.; no faxes, hard-copy, or e-mails will be accepted. Information on how to upload a LOI can be found at UWSW’s website, www.swunitedway.org/grant-application.
Funding will be directed to programs, services, strategies and collaborations that will address short and long-term goals in three specific areas – education, health and basic needs. The LOI will include a one page mission statement and narrative describing how the organization’s program will achieve measurable outcome results that align with the UWSW strategic plan.
Applicants will be contacted regarding their eligibility status the week of January 25, 2013. Organizations whose LOI’s are accepted will then need to submit a full grant application for review. For more information about the LOI and grant funding process (including guidelines and application deadlines) visit www.swunitedway.org/ grant-application, or contact Kathy Tacke at 307-362-5003, or email@example.com.
"United Way’s job in reaching these goals is to recruit the people and organizations from all across the community who bring the passion, expertise and resources needed to get things done. When we engage committed people the work happens. Matching the right programs with available resources allows us to reach these goals. When we are all working together toward a common purpose we are truly living united," said Jana Ditton, United Way board member.
UWSW awarded $9,355 in community impact grants to two programs in Sublette County from the 2012-2013 funding cycle.
