How it works…

Each year, United Way of Yavapai County has specific times in which grant requests can be made.  The United Way of Yavapai County 2019-2020 grant cycle will begin January 2019.   This program is open to 501(c)3  nonprofit organizations and must be used exclusively in Yavapai County.  

The first step is to send a Letter of Intent (LOI) , explaining your program and how the program helps to reduce poverty in the categories of Health, Education or Income (Financial Stability) in Yavapai County.  Your one-page LOI will be due no later than January 31st, 2019.   If approved, you would be sent a formal grant application directly.

The formal grant application will be due March 15th, 2019.  Those agencies that are awarded will be announced within 30 days.

We are excited to partner with other local non-profits to help improve the lives of those in need in  Yavapai County.  Looking forward to hearing from YOU! 

Send your LOI to:  [email protected] no later than January 31st, 2019.  

For questions please call 928.778.6605.

A grant application must align to the three United Way initiatives to reduce poverty,  therefore the program must fall under the categories of Health, Education or Income (financial stability).  

The program you request funds for must only serve Yavapai County and you must be a nonprofit organization or educational institution.   We look for programs filling gaps in services, that have a plan for sustainability, and maximize their use of funds.  

Please contact us if you have any questions.  928.778.6605.
Across the world, we build stronger communities by working in four areas that improve people’s lives:

We help children get a strong start in life, start school ready to succeed, and build critical reading skills to equip them for success in school, work and life.

We help connect youth with the education and support they need for good-paying jobs and lifelong careers.

We give people the education and tools to get better jobs and build a solid foundation that improves their lives and the lives of their children.

We build stronger communities where families have increased access to health care, as well as healthy foods, activities and environments, creating healthier beginnings and healthier lives.

Characterizing these as “the building blocks for a good quality of life” helps people see our work as a foundation for everything that matters in life.
