PATHWAY GRANTS

Pathway Grants

United Way of Southwestern Indiana’s new strategic framework includes a move to competitive grant funding. Requests for Proposals (RFP’s) will be released as determined by the Community Impact Cabinet and will center around one or more of our Pathways. Any 501(c)3 in good standing that serves Vanderburgh, Warrick, or Spencer counties is eligible to apply. A nonprofit does not have to be a legacy “Partner Agency” to apply for these funding opportunities. United Way of Southwestern Indiana is excited to invite more partners into our work of empowering individuals and families with resources to support upward mobility. 

All applications are assessed by United Way’s Community Impact Panels – a group of trained, cross-sector volunteers – who make funding recommendations to the Community Impact Cabinet. For more detailed information on our funding process, click here.
