Building up nonprofits

Every year, we partner with hundreds of nonprofits throughout the region to drive Impact.

Through the Impact Fund, United Way works to strengthen the nonprofit sector by providing the resources to drive lasting, measurable results toward ending poverty in our region. From there, we tap the right partners to bring those strategies to life and drive measurable results. After completing a rigorous application process, UWGPSNJ’s Impact Partners delivering measurable results in United Way’s key strategy areas are selected to receive three-year Core Impact grants, as well as United Way-led programs and local collaborative initiatives designed to meet needs currently unaddressed by the health and human services sector.

Coming soon: Learning Communities

No individual organization can end intergenerational poverty alone. It’s one reason why UWGPSNJ is building Learning Communities to provide opportunities for Impact Partners to learn and collaborate with colleagues from other agencies to drive greater Impact throughout our region.

Learning Communities are currently under construction. Stay tuned to learn more!
