United Way to conduct funding workshop

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — United Way of the River Cities will conduct a workshop for organizations interested in applying for funding.

The workshop will be Jan. 9, 2014, at 10 a.m. at the United Way office at 820 Madison Ave., Huntington (across from the DMV). It is open to health-and-human-service nonprofits that provide services in one or more of the following counties: Cabell, Wayne, Mason and Lincoln counties in West Virginia and Lawrence County in Ohio.

Please visit http://unitedwayrivercities.org/docs/criticalissues_outcomes_2013.pdf to see a list of the critical issues addressed by United Way’s funding. All grant applications must address one of these issues.

Although the workshop is not mandatory, it is strongly recommended that non-profits interested in applying for funding attend. The session will include a review of the online application, the funding process, tips for developing a competitive grant, deadlines and more.
