Together, we are possibility.

Applying for Funding

UWCNEO believes in a community where everyone can succeed. Our targeted investments reflect community conditions and are allocated where they are needed most, to have the greatest impact. These investment strategies support frontline programs and services, advocacy, and research.

UWCNEO’s funding review process ensures that donor dollars are invested for maximum impact. Experienced community volunteers, with the support of staff, review all applications, provide recommendations to our Allocations Committee, with final funding approval from the Board of Directors. The number of funded programs and allocated amounts are determined by dollars raised in the community.

Local, registered charitable organizations who are working to address poverty, building strong communities or helping kids be all they can be, are invited to apply for funding during designated funding timelines. 

 

Sudbury Program Funding

Sudbury Program Funding of $10,000 or more is based on an in-depth review process that determines funding allocations to local programs addressing identified needs for one or more of our focus areas:

  • All that kids can be
  • Building strong communities
  • Moving people from poverty to possibility

To apply for Sudbury Program Funding, agencies must meet the following criteria:
  • Be a Registered Canadian Charity
  • The program must have been operational for one complete year before applying for United Way funding
  • The program aligns with United Way’s focus areas
  • The program must be situated in the City of Greater Sudbury
  • The program demonstrates impact
  • The program applies evidence-based effectiveness

The Sudbury Program Funding application process is now closed. Our volunteers are reviewing applications and we look forward to sharing an announcement in the spring.
