The United Way of Pickaway County is accepting applications for 2021 funding through its Partner Program.

Applications will be open September 1st and run through November 15th for community 501©3 organizations that align with the organizations areas of impact.


“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,” Jama Cobb, director of the United Way of Pickaway County, said. “We encourage any Pickaway County based 501©3 organization who meets at least one of those areas to apply.”


Cobb said any sustainable 501©3 organization that has filed for at least two years is eligible for applying.  "Grant applications are submitted via three easy to use Google Surveys which will be located online at starting September 1st.”

 Programs the United Way of Pickaway County has provided funding to in the past include: The Pickaway Senior Center: Alzheimer's Respite Care and Meals on Wheels, the Haven House: Domestic Violence Advocacy and Transitional Housing Advocacy, the Emergency Clearinghouse Food Pantry, PICCA: Wheels to Work, PICCA Free Tax Clinic, PICCA Homeless Prevention, South Central Ohio Big Brothers Big Sisters: Community-Based Mentoring, School-Based Mentoring, Wait List Services, Simon Kenton Council of the Boy Scouts of America: Traditional Scouting, and the Pickaway County Family YMCA: Summer Fun Club, Before and After-School Care and YMCA Preschool.


Co-Chairs Colin Hedges and Sean Ruth expressed their excitement to once again open our grant applications to our non-profit community organizations. 

"For 2021, we plan on distributing over $120,000.00 in grant funding thanks to the generous donations of Pickaway County residents and businesses,” said Hedges. “Through these grants, our partner agencies are able to help thousands of individuals all across our county.”


“The opening of the grant application window is one of the most exciting times of the year for us,” said Ruth. “Scoring the applications and reading how these programs are helping our neighborhoods and people in Pickaway County energizes our group to continue fundraising through the year to support them in their efforts.”


Over the past two years, the United Way of Pickaway County has raised over $316,000 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. 


"There has never been a more critical time then now to rally behind our community", said Cobb.  "I appreciate the hard work our Board of Trustees, under the leadership of board chair Nathan Anderson, have put into this organization and we are prepared and excited to launch our 2021 campaign, September 1st through November 1st.  We look forward to partnering once again with our community to help those in need."
