United Way of Racine County has completed a multi-year process to transition our focus to building an educated workforce in Racine County. United Way of Racine County's community impact team developed a Request For Proposal (RFP) this year, which guides the community investment process to oversees strategies and initiates public/private partnerships to invest in our community. Each proposal undergoes an approval process completed by our community investment volunteers to ensure the most effective investments. Below is a list of programs that align with United Way of Racine County focus and received funding for the 2017-2018 fiscal year.
Through our annual Community Investment Process, we fund programs in the following categories: Health (H), Education (E), Financial Stability (F), and Basic Needs (B).
