United Way Funding Streams

Emergency Basic Needs Partners
Each year United Way works with multiple food pantries, soup kitchens, and emergency rent/morgage/utility service providers to route much needed funds from government supports to people in need. Funds vary depending on Federal Emergency Food & Shelter Program (EFSP) yearly allocations. For more information contact mluna@uwwp.org.

Employee Designations
Some corporations run a United Way fundraising campaign which allows employees to designate their donation to specific local nonprofits and nonprofits outside of our area. Because we cannot provide any community-wide measurable results to these donations, many companies are choosing to focus on the Community Impact Fund instead. Despite this trend, United Way still raises about $5 million for other nonprofits through employee contributions. Unlike other areas, you do not need to be on a special list to receive funds through open campaigns. Employees simply write in your agency name and as long as your agency is a 501(c)(3) in good standing, you are elibible to receive designated funds.
