Grants to Ontario, Canada non-profit organizations serving Simcoe County, the Town of the Blue Mountains, and the District of Muskoka to address poverty, strengthen communities, and promote healthy childhood development. Applicants are strongly encouraged to attend a workshop on October 23, November 12, or November 14. First-time applicants must contact program staff prior to application.
1) From poverty to possibility - Disparity in income often carries a high price for the entire community. Breaking the cycle of poverty means targeting the source of financial difficulties and fixing these problems at the root. United Way is looking for initiatives that meet people’s basic needs for food, shelter and safety; those that ensure individuals have stable and sufficient employment; and those that make education, training and learning opportunities affordable and accessible for all.
2) Strong communities - A focus within this priority are initiatives that create safe, welcoming, accessible and inclusive neighborhood hubs, where people are encouraged to accept each other’s differences and work together. United Way will work to build strong families by supporting violence-prevention efforts and ensuring all families – particularly those with complex needs – are supported within their community.
United Way is looking for initiatives that reduce barriers and isolation for those with addictions and mental health issues through counseling, referrals, rehabilitation and other services. As well, services that support seniors and individuals with disabilities are ideal. United Way also funds programs supporting the community with shared resources and information. Organizations that centralize services to recruit and educate volunteers are also candidates for funding.
3) All that kids can be - Children deserve to live, learn and grow in a stable, caring environment. United Way's goal is to see that children have their basic needs for food, education and shelter met. United Way is looking for organizations that support the healthy growth and development of young people. This means actively targeting the source of their challenges and working to address systemic issues.
