United Way of Nevada County

What's happening now at your United Way:

United Way of Nevada County is currently going through our annual partner application and fund distribution process. Current partners can request funding with a special emphasis on achieving their goals for food security, emergency shelter and access to healthcare. Non-profits that are not currently partners can apply for partnership. Whether a non-profit receives funds or not, just achieving partnership status, demonstrates effectiveness as well as stability for other grant applications and your piece of mind when considering donating or volunteering directly for them.

As a part of the affirmation process for partnership or funding, we ask citizens of Nevada County like yourself to participate in a review process. Teams of four (4) to six (6) individuals are set up to review applications, visit the non-profit and assess their programs. What a great way to learn more about the leading non-profits in Nevada County! If you are interested in being part of this process, contact us.
