Partner Agencies

United Way of Northern California distributes grant allocations to non-profit agencies. This year we are awarding a total of $121,000 to 22 North State community agencies for distribution in calendar year 2017.

In the past United Way awarded grants to about 50 area non-profits, from a similar-sized total funding pool. The UWNC Board of Directors voted earlier this year to give fewer – and therefore somewhat larger – grants to partner agencies that closely align the grants with United Way’s goals and mission. 

Each agency chosen has undergone an application process that validates the great work they do for our local community and many of the organizations funded are aligned with goals laid out in the Prosperity Initiative, a collective impact project led by United Way the past two years.

Anderson-Cottonwood Christian Assistance, Anderson
