United Way of Greater Plymouth County will host an informational workshop for any nonprofit organization interested in applying for United Way funding for FY2022 (July 1, 2021 to June 30, 2022). The workshop will take place on Thursday, January 14, 2021 from 9 A.M. to 11 A.M. in a virtual capacity on Zoom.
All interested agencies, including first-time applicants, are required to attend the workshop to be eligible for funding consideration.
With a mission to “unite people, ideas and resources to improve the lives of people in Greater Plymouth County”, United Way of Greater Plymouth County aims to direct resources to the most vulnerable, lowest income population in our community. Therefore, we support programs that promote the education of our youth, the physical health and healthy lifestyles of our most vulnerable neighbors, and the financial stability of our families under the broad and interrelated pillars of Health, Education, and Financial Stability. For this round of funding, initiatives must pertain to the five LIVE UNITED Community Recovery areas as detailed below.
LIVE UNITED Recovery Fund – In light of the significant long-term challenges for our neighbors and our communities resulting from the devastating pandemic, United Way, The Family Center, and Community Connections are generating life-saving resources through our annual campaign to be directed toward reimaging and rebuilding our communities. We are purposefully pivoting our work from emergency response to community recovery. While we continue to focus our efforts on the interrelated pillars of Education, Health and Financial Stability, we will be focusing our efforts on five initiatives for the foreseeable future.
LIVE UNITED Community Recovery Focus Areas:
- Feeding Our Families (Health)
- Preventing Evictions & Ending Homelessness (Financial Stability)
- Accessing Affordable Health Services (Health)
- Returning to Learning for Our Children & Youth (Education)
- Aspiring to Hire for Our Recently Unemployed (Financial Stability)
Critical to our work in meeting these needs is the realization that for people of diverse backgrounds these challenges are greater and deeper in terms of their degree and complexity. This means that we must direct significantly greater attention and enhance our sensitivity to the issues of race, equity and justice as we design our solutions to our communities’ problems.
Request for Proposal (RFP’s) packets will be available online following the workshop.
Please note, in case of inclement weather, a snow date has been scheduled for January 15th.
Anyone interested in attending the workshop should RSVP to Kim Allen, Director of Community Relations & Marketing, United Way of Greater Plymouth County, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
