Why are we asking you to do this?
The Request to Apply for Funding allows the United Way of Knox County and Crawford Count to identify the organizations and programs that will request funding prior to entering into our annual campaign each year. Prior knowledge will allow the UW to set goals, promote agencies ( in both written and verbal marketing), and enable our committee members to improve upon due diligence by personally familiarizing themselves with the organizations with which the UW partners. The UW is working to build a stronger community by funding the creation or enhancement of programs that address the needs of our community. Input from community members, contributors, and volunteers affirm the value our community places on these issues. We are in the process of developing strategies to improve in these areas ad to implement community-minded metrics to monitor progress. We apprecite your request and look forward to identifying how your program aligns with the aspirations of our community.
