United Way Begins Accepting Applications for 2017 Funding

United Way of North Central Arkansas has announced they are starting a new cycle of funding and initiative work for 2017.

Interested non-profit agencies working in the areas of education, financial stability and health are invited to submit an application for United Way funding for 2017.

To be considered for 2017 funding, applications must be completed and filed with the United Way office no later than April 12, 2016 at 3:00 pm.  An applying organization must be a non-profit, tax-exempt charitable organization providing a direct and meaningful service to the people of North Cleburne, Independence, Izard, Sharp and/or Stone Counties, and must have been in existence for at least 2 years. 

“This is the most exciting part of our work,” said United Way Executive Director, Allison Phelps, “Putting the dollars we raised back into our community to provide much needed services makes the fundraising we do year-round very rewarding.”  United Way’s yearly campaign funds partner agencies and initiatives dedicated to improving the quality of life in their respective communities. 

United Way of North Central Arkansas is in the middle of their 2015-2016 Campaign, which will be closing soon and is just under $30,000 away from reaching its fundraising goal.  Your generous support of United Way helps our community all year long.  United Way resources help children and youth succeed, strengthen and support families, promote self-sufficiency and support vulnerable and aging populations.
