Capital Area United Way
Grants to South Dakota nonprofit organizations in Hughes and Stanley counties to address critical human needs, and thereby improve the quality of life for local residents. Applicants must provide services that specifically address the categories of nurturing children, strengthening families, enriching the lives of seniors, providing emergency services, and/or promoting health and wellness. Prospective agencies must demonstrate a general acceptability within the community as a whole.
In return for receiving these grants, funded agencies are required to support the United Way campaign, and actively promote their involvement with the United Way to the community-at-large, and to refrain from competing with United Way in their solicitations.

- Participating in speaking engagements
- Providing services at the workplace, and
- Conducting tours of agency programs; and
- Agencies will also contribute to the success of the United Way and the annual campaign by speaking positively to others about United Way and its work.
The terms of partnership with United Way are detailed in a written partnership agreement, signed by the Board President of both organizations. The partnership agreement outlines the rights and responsibilities of both United Way and the partner agency, including:
- The agency’s right to apply for funding from United Way during the term of the agreement, as long as the agency remains in compliance with United Way standards, and the agency’s right to appeal;
