Summer 2021 Project Based Funding Opportunity


Capital Area United Way (CAUW) envisions a community where everyone is empowered to reach their full potential. Our mission is to solve our community’s toughest challenges by leveraging partnerships to advance the common good in education, income stability, and healthy living. In pursuit of this mission, we seek to partner with the most efficient and effective service providers in the Capital Region.


Capital Area United Way’s Project-Based Grant Opportunity is a mechanism for funding outside of the existing three- year program operations grant cycle, allowing for CAUW to be more responsive to community needs throughout each fiscal year. CAUW will award a minimum of $300,000 through this opportunity. Individual grant awards will typically range between $1,500 and $15,000. The available amount of dollars available for Project-Based Grants changes each year and is dependent on our annual campaign and unrestricted dollars available.

Applications will open Monday, July 12, 2021 and close on Thursday, August 12, 2021 at 5 p.m. Grant notifications may take up to twelve weeks following the submission deadline.
