Successful Kids. Three girls smile while hugging one another

Thank you for your submission. This call for applications is now closed.

United Way remains committed to investing in our priority area of Successful Kids
because kids are the future of our city and deserve a great start in life.

The Call for Applications reflected United Way’s Board-approved 2018 Kids Investment Strategy. Our approach to Successful Kids investments positions us to achieve lasting social change and advances United Way’s three foundational goals in our new Strategic Plan: deepen community impact, inspire relationship and generate resources, and demonstrate excellence as a high-performing organization.

What you need to know

  1. The Call for Applications was focused on supporting two priority areas:
