United Way to open funding process

-A A +A
By Special to the Monitor

The local United Way is changing how funds will be used in area communities.

“The United Way of Northern New Mexico (UWNNM) is changing its nonprofit funding model beginning with funds raised in Campaign 2011,” Board President Jill Cook said.

Currently, the annual Community Investment process is limited to 18 member agencies for funding from the UWNNM Community Solutions Fund, as well as from donor designations.  

A smaller grants program is open to qualified nonprofits serving Los Alamos and or Rio Arriba counties.

Beginning in 2011, all Community Investments will be made through a competitive grants program open to all qualified 501 (c 3) nonprofits serving Los Alamos and Rio Arriba counties.  

The goal is to allow UWNNM the flexibility to fund programs that address the changing needs within our communities.

“There is no question that our current member agencies provide excellent services,” Cook said. “We expect many of our current member agencies will apply and receive funding through the new grants process. But now, if there are unmet needs in our communities, then your local United Way can be instrumental in providing funding to programs addressing those needs.”
