United Way Grants

2017-2018 Grant Cycle

United Way of the Eastern Panhandle (UWEP) is pleased to announce a new grant application cycle. Any 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, including schools and government agencies, that serve the West Virginia counties of Morgan, Berkeley and Jefferson are eligible to apply for grants funded by UWEP.

Community Impact grants are available for requests over $5,000 and our LIVE UNITED grants are for $5,000 and under.

Grant applications should align with UWEP Impact Areas and Focus Issues. United Way's Impact Areas are Education, Income, Health and Basic Needs. Please see the Grant Application Guidelines for more information on Impact Areas, Focus Issues, Targeted Goals and Suggested Outcome Measures.

An organization may submit multiple applications for separate programs.  However, any funded program may receive only one Community Impact or LIVE UNITED grant per UWEP’s fiscal year which runs from July 1 to June 30.

All applications are due by close of business on March 1, 2017.  Applications will be considered by a volunteer review team, and grant awards will be announced in June 2017.

Thank you for your interest in partnering with United Way of the Eastern Panhandle.  We are looking forward to building strong collaborations in our community.  Please contact our office with any questions regarding the application process.
