United Way of North Central Oklahoma-

Grant funds are available to non-profit organizations through the United Way of North central Oklahoma Manering Endowment, designated gifts program.

The Endowment welcomes proposals from any non-profit organization in Kay County with an IRS tax-exempt status and a policy of non-discrimination. The Endowment will consider funding for special projects and new innovative programs focusing on Education, Financial Stability and Health and Safety. These three focus areas are critical to improving lives in our community. Online applications are due March 22 by noon and disbursements will be made April 15.

An endowment committee made up of UWNCO board members and community volunteers manage the funds. Anyone can designate a gift to this endowment fund to help support our local non-profit organizations.

The chances of a proposal being funded are substantially increased if the project meets one of the following criterions:

  • Proposes practical solutions to community problems.
  • Promotes volunteer participation and/or citizen involvement in the community.
  • Could not be accomplished with other sources of support.
  • Is responsive to changing or emerging community needs.
  • Exhibits likelihood of future funding, unless a one-time capital need.
  • Promotes cooperation among non-profit agencies without duplicating efforts.
  • Addresses prevention as well as assistance for a problem

Go to www.uwnco.org to fill out the online application. For more information, call the United Way office at 580.765.2476.
