The Special Projects Fund 

Log in or Register to apply

The Special Projects fund is designed to provide resources to address emergent human service needs in Greater Franklin County on a one-time basis. Preference will be given to programs and projects that are collaborative and innovative in nature.

Existing Community Partners may apply, however only requests for new programs and projects that are not currently funded by the United Way will be reviewed. 

Applicants do not need to be 501c(3) non-profit organizations.

Awards will not generally exceed $5,000.

There is no application deadline. Proposals will be considered on a rolling basis and will be considered as funding permits.
