2019 Foundation Loaned Executive Grant

We are pleased to announce United Way of Dane County Foundation’s 2019 Powerful Experiences: Youth Mentorship and Leadership Grant. At this time, we are requesting proposals from Dane County nonprofit agencies, community organizations, and faith-based groups to help ensure that Dane County youth can succeed academically and graduate high school, prepared for higher education, career and community. A total of $10,000 in grant dollars is available, with $5,000 being the maximum allocation to a single agency.

This grant is made possible by one-time funds distributed annually from United Way of Dane County Foundation’s interest earnings. The grant process is an opportunity for United Way Loaned Executives (limited-term employees who lead the annual fundraising campaign) to better understand community needs and how resources are allocated. The deliberation and decision making are key components of their professional development.

The 2019 grant focus is on creating powerful experiences for youth that provide mentorship and develop leadership qualities. Proposals could include but are not limited to leadership trainings, conferences, and trips.

Questions and completed Applications may be directed via email to foundation@uwdc.org.
