The United Way of Rutherford and Cannon Counties is in the process of recruiting non-profit organizations to submit interest forms to receive grant support up to $10,000. Organizations that have a 501(c)3 IRS status that wish to partner with United Way for its next fiscal year may submit a letter of intent on the organization's website at www.uwrutherford.org. All letters of intent must submitted by October 31, 2012, for consideration.
The program that is requesting partnership with United Way must serve at least one of United Way's impact areas of education, income, health or rebuilding lives and provide service in Rutherford and/or Cannon county.
Organizations submitting a letter of intent will be notified no later than November 30, 2012, as to whether they will be extended an invitation to apply to partner with United Way for the 2013-2014 fiscal year. Applications will be made available to those organizations in December.
During the current fiscal year, United Way is partnering with 49 programs, including 10 grant partners, 36 partner agencies, and three United Way initiatives, such as the 2-1-1 information and referral services line.
United Way works to identify issues in the community, develop partnerships with organizations who have the ability to address those issues, implement a plan of action and measure results that are reported to the community.
