Funding Process

United Way of Racine County invests local dollars in the community through our grantmaking process. Funding decisions align with our goal of building an educated workforce. Our grants are invested in high-performing, nonprofit organizations that provide programs and services aligned with the four strategic areas of health, education, financial stability, and essential services. 

Organizations requesting funding must:

  • Serve Racine County residents
  • Have an active board of trustees
  • Adhere to ethical standards
  • Provide evidence of financial accountability
  • Be tax-exempt as described in section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

United Way of Racine County does not fund:

  • Organizations that discriminate on the basis of race, age, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, ethnicity or national origin
  • Political causes, candidates, organizations or campaign
In addition to funding nearly 40 area nonprofits, United Way of Racine County funds several of its own initiatives in health, education, financial stability, and essential services.
