United Way partners are trusted organizations that come together to enhance
HEALTH, EDUCATION and ECONOMIC MOBILITY.
They have demonstrated effective service delivery with defined outcomes and measures of success.
We believe that strong and vibrant nonprofits contribute to a thriving region. The Nonprofit Toolkit is here to help United Way supported partners, as well as those seeking additional funding opportunities and resources.
United Way's Synergy Fund helps our nonprofit partners explore connections to improve efficiency and better serve their clients and our community.
Synergy Grants offer technical assistance and implementation support for mergers and affiliations.
