United Way Community Fund grants
It has been 10 years since the United Way crafted the original Community Fund Blueprint for Change strategies. Much has changed in the last decade and this, our 100th anniversary year, is the ideal time to conduct a robust, thorough and inclusive process to inform strategies to guide future United Way investments. Planning is underway. We’ve engaged the Center for Governmental Research to lend their expertise, conducted a community needs survey and have started what will be conversations with hundreds of community members, subject matter experts, service providers, those needing services and other stakeholders to gain insight into Rochester’s most daunting human service issues. This input will inform the focus of our funding starting in 2020.
Early in the spring of 2019 we’ll publish the new investment strategies and launch the open and competitive grant process for grant investments that will begin August 1, 2020.
