On June 30, United Way completed our 60th fiscal year and we are excited to provide reports, highlighting our community investments. Over the coming months, our e-newsletters will include information on UWLC’s financial performance during FY18-19, information on our Community Impact, Basic Needs and Emergency Food & Shelter Program grants and reports that summarize our work in communities throughout Larimer County.
To begin this reporting series, we thought it might be interesting to summarize the results achieved through our newest grants – Innovation and Nonprofit Excellence. These grants debuted last summer and were specifically intended to allow United Way to be nimble and responsive to time-sensitive community needs, assist organizations with opportunities to leverage new dollars, and as a resource for capacity building expenses (an area that nonprofits often find hard to fund).
The results, after just one year, are impressive! We are very grateful to the nonprofits who applied for these new resources, and who place value on trying new solutions to increase their impact for children and families. We also want to express our gratitude to those who gave to our Innovation and Nonprofit Excellence funds, and to all who gave undesignated gifts to United Way through workplace campaigns, the Alexis de Tocqueville program, corporate gifts and individual donations. These undesignated gifts allow United Way staff and board members to evaluate community needs, combine resources from a variety of sources and provide funding where it will make the biggest impact, thus providing donors with the highest return on investment. Thank you ALL for trusting United Way with your philanthropic dollars – through you, we are making a real difference in Larimer County!
