We depend on strong partnerships with 27+ nonprofit organizations to make Franklin County better for all. Whether you're a currently funded partner, seeking funding for the first time or looking to start a new community initiative, this is the place for you.
United Way funded programs are chosen from a competitive application process in order to direct grant funding to the most effective programs in Franklin County.
When reviewing proposals from registered 501(c)(3) agencies, volunteers and United Way staff us the following selection criteria:
- Location: Funding is restricted to Franklin County, including the five towns of the North Quabbin that fall into Franklin County (Erving, New Salem, Orange, Warwick, and Wendell).
- Alignment: Programs must align with at least one of our organizational priorities, Education, Health, and Financial Stability.
- Impact: Programming must be effective as reflected by evaluation efforts and outcomes.
- Clients: Populations served should encompass people of all backgrounds and abilities.
