United Way donations impact our communities by providing Community Grant Funds to non-profit agencies that improve Education, Income, and Health in Roosevelt and Curry Counties.
United Way of Eastern New Mexico is the largest grant-making organization in the two counties, raising and investing over half a million dollars into our local programs and economy each year.
Any 501(c)3 non-profit that serves residents of Curry and/or Roosevelt Counties with programs that impact Education, Income, or Health may apply for a grant. Every year 40-50 volunteers review the grant applications, listen to presentations from the applying agencies, and submit the recommended funding levels to the UWENM Board of Directors for approval.
Because UWENM funding decisions are made by community volunteers, those decisions best reflect the needs, issues, and values of your community. The Board of Directors feels that this is the best way to ensure that UW stays true to the values of our donors.
In 2018, UWENM is transitioning to a Two Year Grant Cycle. Therefore this grant cycle is for 18 months--amounts reflect payouts Jan 2018-Jun 2019. Our next RFP training will be in November 2018 for a proposal due date of March 20, 2019. Those grants will be announced in April 2019 and run from July 2019 to Jun 2021.
