2020 Funding Applications Now Available
United Way opens applications for financial assistance program (August 1st through September 15th)
Aligned with our four pillar impact areas of Health, Safety Net, Education, and Income, funding applications with the United Way offer a means to support outstanding programs through empowering them with the tools and resources they need to continue to positively impact the lives of Pickaway County residents.
In 2019, the United Way of Pickaway County raised over $118,000 for its community alongside its faithful donors, businesses, and contributors. Impact programming with the United Way looks like a child succeeding in school, creating pathways where families are financially stable and when people are healthy To apply, prospective agencies and their designated liaisons will gather the information needed to complete the three surveys and then upload the required documentation and submit each survey.
Upon submitting all three Google surveys, your organization’s request for funding will be complete and ready for review by the board of trustees. Partner Programs need only submit the 2020 Grant Application Budget Survey and Investment Application/Compliance Survey, but must have their umbrella agency fill out the Agency Certification Survey. For example, in 2019 the United Way funded 4 PICCA programs. At time of application however, only one PICCA agency certification was required as a part of their application for PICCA. In the event that the program in which you are applying for does not have an umbrella organization you must complete an agency certification.
Prospective applicants may use these surveys as a guide before gathering materials and then ultimately uploading submissions through each of the surveys.
2. 2020 Partner Agency Certification (Only one Partner Agency Certification Form is required to be filled out by an applying partner. For example, in 2019 the United Way funded 4 PICCA programs. At time of application however, only one PICCA agency certification was required as a part of their application for PICCA.)
