Apply for Funding

In 2014, we engaged community partners (funded agencies and programs), community members and others from across the 10-parish capital area in meaningful conversations. They talked about their hopes, dreams and aspirations for the community. What current challenges we are facing and the solutions that we need to focus on to make the biggest impact in the Greater Baton Rouge community. With this insight in mind, we created a plan for our future. The result: Capital Area United Way’s impact model.

For the first time in our 90 year history, Capital Area United Way opened its formal funding process to any 501c in our 10-parish service area with the ability to fit into our 11 programmatic strategies.  Agencies will receive three years of stabilized funding beginning July 1, 2016. Our Board of Directors is currently developing a plan to invest in our five community level strategies.
