United Way Certified Partnership

What does it mean to be a United Way Partner?

United Way of Nevada County partners with organizations that share our view that the way to improve lives is by mobilizing the caring power of communities. Their commitment is essential to addressing key social issues, such as helping children and youth achieve through education, promoting financial stability and independence, and improving people's health. 


United Way of Nevada County does the necessary due diligence for our donors through our Partnership application process and Citizen Review Team (CRT) process. We invite you to be part of the change.  Strengthening the building blocks for a good life  and a better tomorrow.  Building a better Nevada County together - that's what it means to LIVE UNITED!
 

In order for a non-profit to apply to become a new Partner with United Way of Nevada County, they must be an established 501(c)3 non-profit serving Nevada County for three years, in Health & Human  Services. 


After qualifying for certified Partner status, agencies may request funding during the next annual Community Impact Process after being a Partner for one year. To remain a Partner and/or request funding, current  United Way partner agencies must complete a Partnership/Funding Application  annually.


United Way of Nevada County has given over one million dollars back to the community over the past ten years, through the Community Impact process. This includes designations and allocations to partners and programs.  Through the process Hospitality House received a van for their Street Outreach program.


Partners and potential partners may check out the Partner Resources page for helpful information and a link to our annual Partnership/Funding Application.
