Announcing Determinations for the 2024-25

Community Grant Cycle.

The United Way of Whitman County provides non-restricted funding, allowing partner agencies to provide essential services that they would not be able to give otherwise due to gaps from other funding sources. All presenting agencies voiced concerns over inflation significantly impacting people's ability to stay afloat. The underlying theme for most of the grant requests included the need for applying agencies to improve their availability of food to meet a sharp increase in requests.

The United Way of Whitman County mobilizes communities to action so all can thrive.

For more than 95 years, UWWC has networked with non-profits, businesses, government entities, and service organizations to address complex challenges impacting the communities we serve. We have financially supported local non-profits and collaborated to co-create solutions to people's most pressing challenges. We take a comprehensive approach, listening, and responding to local needs, and together create pathways to better education, access to services leading to increased health, and fuel financial stability primarily through addressing food insecurity and rental assistance. We also support projects that help elderly and disabled individuals safely remain in their homes longer, and access social and practical needs.

 

We are committed to:

• Childhood Readiness          • Youth Development

• Income Stability                   • Healthy Lives

• Community Resiliency

Education, Childhood & Youth Success

Education is a cornerstone for navigating school, work, and life. Setting kids on the path to success begins early and continues with important support measures for children and families to ensure each child reaches their potential and obtains the highest-level education possible. The UWWC partners with agencies specializing in early intervention for childhood success as well as organizations that bring a high level of interactive learning to build and support youth success.

Increase Health Outcomes

Good health is an essential ingredient for individual success and a thriving community. Caring for the physical, mental, and emotional health of people of all ages is essential to a flourishing population. Increasing outcomes so all of our residents have access to services is a primary goal of the UWWC. We are committed to more than short-term charity for a few; we are committed to lasting solutions that build opportunity and accessibility for all. The UWWC provides unrestricted funding to community partners offering health services so clients can be seen, assessed, and receive services quickly.

Financial Stability 

The whole community benefits when working individuals and families are able to stop walking a financial tightrope and get on solid ground. That’s why we focus on lasting solutions that go beyond charity because financially stable people are more likely to have access to quality health care, provide a good education for their children, and contribute to their local economies.
