United Way Community Fund Grants
In United Way's 100th Anniversary we're embarking on a robust, thorough and inclusive process to guide our investment strategy beginning in 2020. Planning is underway and United Way has 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.
