Greensboro, NC (May 29, 2020) – United Way of Greater Greensboro creates partnerships that are working together to END local poverty and is pleased to announce 62 local nonprofit programs and initiatives received$5,033,358 in its annual, 2020-2021 strategic partner grant investment.

All investment decisions are led by local volunteers who review grant applications. Thanks to this approach, United Way has created a community-wide network of partners that works together to connect people to opportunities we all deserve like housing, jobs, education and overall wellness.

Annual grant funding is open to all local nonprofits, which allows new and existing partners equal opportunity to apply for funding. Grants are awarded on two-year funding cycles and recipients must meet meaningful, data-driven goals.

“To create the greatest impact, United Way invests in programs, collaborations, and strategies that lift local children, adults and families out of poverty,” said Frank McCain, Vice President of Community Impact and Investments. “Our open, volunteer-led funding process, allows us to invest in programs in ways that are responsive to our community’s evolving needs and align with the goal of ending poverty.”

“Thanks to the tremendous support of the greater Greensboro community, our strategy is helping thousands of local children and families. In collaboration with our partners, we are offering holistic services that are truly working together across the entire community," says Bill Morrisette, United Way of Greater Greensboro Campaign Chair and President CEO, Morrisette.
