A grant application must align to the three United Way initiatives to reduce poverty,  therefore the program must fall under the categories of Health, Education or Income (financial stability).  

The program you request funds for must only serve Yavapai County and you must be a nonprofit organization or educational institution.   We look for programs filling gaps in services, that have a plan for sustainability, and maximize their use of funds.  

Please contact us if you have any questions.  928.778.6605.

​ WHAT WE DO
Across the world, we build stronger communities by working in four areas that improve people’s lives:

EARLY CHILDHOOD SUCCESS
We help children get a strong start in life, start school ready to succeed, and build critical reading skills to equip them for success in school, work and life.

YOUTH SUCCESS
We help connect youth with the education and support they need for good-paying jobs and lifelong careers.

FINANCIAL STABILITY
We give people the education and tools to get better jobs and build a solid foundation that improves their lives and the lives of their children.

ACCESS TO HEALTH
We build stronger communities where families have increased access to health care, as well as healthy foods, activities and environments, creating healthier beginnings and healthier lives.

Characterizing these as “the building blocks for a good quality of life” helps people see our work as a foundation for
everything that matters in life.
