The Interlakes Area United Way will award just under 108-thousand dollars in grant funding in 2021. The money will bolster 27 non-profit programs and organizations in Lake, Miner and Moody Counties.
Roughly two-thirds of the recipients are based in and/or directly serve Lake County and will collectively receive more than 73-thousand dollars.
The Interlakes Area United Way coordinates financial and volunteer resources for non-profit agencies which address and support mental and physical health, education and financial stability.
To receive funding, organizations must apply and meet allocation guidelines. The United Way board reviews applications and considers them based on community impact, program effectiveness and other factors.
Grant funding was made possible in part by the generosity of individuals and businesses who donated to the United Way’s most recent campaign drive, which concluded in December. Other fundraising efforts included the organization’s annual WIN BIG Raffle and Dine Out to Donate promotion.
The Interlakes Area United Way is looking for volunteers to join its board of directors.
