UWTC Fall Grant Cycle Open to Tompkins County Non-Profits

United Way of Tompkins County will invest $63,870.00 through two fall grant opportunities thanks to the continual support of our Corporate Cornerstone Partners and the community. UWTC fights for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in Tompkins County.
$38,870.00 is available through the Hunger & Food Security Fall grant cycle. UWTC Lives United locally to address the existing, complex food and hunger issues. All Tompkins County nonprofit organizations are eligible to apply for funding. Online applications are due on Friday, September 30 at 11:59pm.
$25,000 is available through the Youth and Philanthropy Program. The Youth and Philanthropy (YAP) program of UWTC is now in its 17th year. The program is a leadership initiative for high school students across the TST-BOCES district; specifically designed to develop skills in the areas of problem-solving, community assessment, financial management, program evaluation, fund distribution, team building and communication. Through YAP, students strengthen their interest in philanthropy and civic engagement, and learn more about assets and needs in the community. The program is made possible through a generous grant from Triad Foundation. All nonprofit organizations in Tompkins County are eligible to apply. Online applications are due on Friday, September 30 at 11:59pm.
