Partnership Opportunities Through Funding

Community Investment Fund

United Way of the Greater Triangle is pleased to announce its 2019 Community Impact Fund RFP is now open. United Way will accept applications through March 1, 2019 from programs and collaborative initiatives that contribute to the Cradle to Career and Healthy Families Focus Areas.

  • Broad funding categories are: Cradle to Career, Healthy Families and Equity In Leadership.
  • We will still prioritize hunger, homelessness, health, education and career readiness as areas of focus for our investments.
  • We have seen significant impact over the last three years of investment in Collective Impact.  We recognize the valuable role intentional collaboration plays in addressing barriers for children and families in the Triangle.  We will continue to invest in some collaborative partnerships and we will have increased opportunities for single agency investments.  Partners will have the ability to apply for the strategy that best fits their organization.
    Each agency must apply for at least 1 but no more than 2 programs/collaboratives
  • Funding request amounts have been pre-determined and are broken into 1-year and 2-year award requests
  • Requests will be reviewed by community volunteers to ensure Focus Area alignment and impact
  • To submit your proposal, it is a two-step process
    1. Register your program/collaborative and await "approval to apply" (approvals are issued within one business day)
    2. Complete the online application and submit for review.
  • Because "approvals to apply" are manually issued, and can take up to one business day to process, please plan your application timeline accordingly.  No late submissions will be accepted.
  • All proposals will be due by 11:59pm on March 1st.
  • Please review all of the frequently asked questions prior to beginning the application process
  • If you have questions regarding the RFP, please contact Nick Allen.
