United Way is once again inviting human service organizations in Lethbridge and South Western Alberta to apply for funding to support programs for people and families in the 2018-2019 year.
Proposed programs will align with United Ways vision of alleviating poverty; building healthy, inclusive communities, or encouraging positive child and youth development.
Over the past three years, United Way has provided grants to 33 different organizations in the area. Collectively, the programs funded by United Way and its community donors help thousands of people each year.
In order to ensure that donors’ dollars are invested where they will have the greatest impact and address the most urgent needs, a team of community volunteer assists with the evaluation and review process.
Organizations wishing to apply for funds can find forms and eligibility information at www.lethbridgeunitedway.ca/funding . The deadline to apply is March 29, 2018.
Community members interested in taking part in the evaluation process can contact United Way at 403-327-1700 for more information, or submit a volunteer application, including resume and references on United Way’s website.
