United Way Perth-Huron is now accepting Expressions of Interest for 3 year Impact Funding

2023-2026 Impact Funding Guidelines 

As part of United Way Perth-Huron’s (UWPH) Community Impact & Allocations Plan, UWPH gives everyone in our community an equal opportunity to submit funding requests. Funding requests will be evaluated using the following criteria:
1. Program provides service in Perth County and/or Huron County (Ontario, Canada)
2. Program reduces or prevents poverty in our community
3. Program prioritizes service to one or more equity-seeking and vulnerable populations
4. Program aligns to UWPH’s Community Impact & Investment Plan
5. Program addresses an urgent need facing our community
6. Program is led by an eligible organization that is sustainable, stable and strong and fulfills the expectations for Supported Partners. 
Impact Funding Description
Three-year Impact Funding is intended for ongoing programs that are part of the organization’s over-arching structure and mission. The intent of offering multi-year funding is to provide increased financial stability for applicants and a greater capacity to measure outcomes achieved. The multi-year funding model promotes sustainability of services for the community by allowing organizations to concentrate more on program design, delivery and evaluation. Additionally, multi-year funding encourages longer-term planning, evaluation of impact and efficiency for both organizations and UWPH. It may also enable organizations to better leverage their positions for additional funding elsewhere. Multi-year funding facilitates efficient and effective use of staff/volunteer/organization time during the allocation process and enables both organizations and UWPH to engage in longer-term planning and outcomes measurement.
