Community INvestment Program

Our objective for funding is to find opportunities to support providers projects or programs that are impact-driven, equitable, transparent, and regionally focused.


In 2019 we created a partnership with Willamette University’s Atkinson Graduate School of Management to facilitate our grant process. Students research applicants, present their recommendations, and track the progress of how the grantees use the United Way funds.


Adaptation For Tomorrow’s Environmental Realignment Community Impact Fund – award of grant funds to support activities related to mitigating the impact of climate change in Marion, Polk, and Yamhill Counties.
Dedicated to facilitating lasting social change, we work together with businesses, government, schools, faith groups, community members, and other nonprofits, because it takes the whole community to achieve the kind of results we need.
