About United Way Grants

In 2017, United Way Battlement to the Bells (UWBB) is moving its focus and programs to underscore the recognized community-impact model – measureable outcomes for local work and projects that combine and connect resources offered by individual nonprofit organizations.

We aim to transform our annual grant-making process, which traditionally has included our UWBB Grants Committee’s annual review of prospective nonprofit-grantees’ funding requests (organizational mission, financial results, board management, offered programs, etc.).

Going forward, we will focus on selecting for funding those worthy nonprofits that strive to collaborate and to work cooperatively on projects that underscore our United Way Battlement to the Bells credo: United, we help change our community for good.
