United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey
Grants to Southeastern Pennsylvania and Southern New Jersey non-profit organizations offering quality, innovative programs that deliver measurable results in the areas of education, income, and health, as well as strengthen the region's safety net. These grants are intended to support programs that provide individuals and families with access to the resources they need right now, while also addressing the root causes of some of the region’s most persistent challenges.
The United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey believes that everyone deserves a quality education, from cradle to career; the opportunity to build skills required for work that pays a family-sustaining income; and access to the resources they need — when they need them — to maintain good health and in times of crisis. As such, the UWGPSNJ seeks agency Impact Partners whose programs and/or services target specific individuals or groups and fulfill defined program components for each of the following strategy areas:
* Education – better prepare children to enter kindergarten ready to learn, learn to read at grade level by third grade, and stay on track to graduate high school college- and career-ready
* Income – help more working individuals and families improve their financial literacy and stability
* Health – build healthier communities for all children, adults, and families
* Basic Needs – support the area's most vulnerable neighbors when they need a hand the most
* Advocacy - educate both policy makers and community members on important issues to promote long-term solutions that improve education, income, and health, as well as those that ensure basic human needs are met
