Implementing Partners

Volunteer reading to school children

Our Strategic Impact Grants deliver measurable improvements in our impact areas of education, income and health. 

To receive funding, organizations submit an application to United Way for Impact Grants.

Applications are then reviewed by a panel of local, independent volunteers. Grants are awarded to nonprofits and programs whose work aligns with our strategic impact goals.

These are the 53 Implementing Partners for the two-year cycle beginning on July 1, 2021 who, collectively, help give Quad Citizens the opportunity for economic mobility, quality education and health care – regardless of race or ZIP code:
