For Non Profits -Grants


United Way of Marathon County has established a Bold Goal of lifting 10,000 community members to financial stability by 2033. As such, our funding priorities will focus on accomplishing that goal. As always, grants will be awarded through a competitive application process. Applications will be evaluated by a dedicated group of United Way volunteers otherwise known as our Investment Team. Final grant decisions will be made by the United Way Board of Directors.

The RFP is closed for the season.
