Strategic Partner Grants

In Greensboro, 57,000 people and 25% of children are living in poverty.  United Way finds this unacceptable which is why we’ve created a community-wide network of Strategic Partners that work together to end poverty.

Every year, United Way accepts grant applications from human service organizations through an open and competitive process.  Volunteer-led committees called Impact Councils select programs based on their abilities to produce outcomes that reduce the number of children, families and adults living in poverty. This “open funding” model allows United Way to invest donor gifts into local programs with proven solutions that are decreasing poverty.

2020-22 Strategic Partner Grants:  The Letter of Interest Process is now Closed.
