We fund over two dozen organizations in Westmoreland, Fayette and Southern Armstrong through our Impact Fund grants.
These partner agencies help us prepare more students to succeed in school, help families break the cycle of poverty and help seniors, people with disabilities and everyone in our community live their healthiest life.

We're all in this together. Learn more about how your organization can partner with and receive funding from United Way.

We award Impact Fund grants to qualified local nonprofits in Westmoreland, Fayette and Southern Armstrong Counties.
We aware Impact Fund grants in three key focus areas: education, income/financial stability and health. Each focus area grant runs on a three year cycle.

Prior to starting a new grant cycle, we assemble a committee of community volunteers to review funding priorities and impact strategies.
After their review is complete, we launch a competitive Request for Proposal process that is guided by our Grant Review committee, comprised of community leaders and stakeholders.
