Become a Partner

United Way of Salt Lake works with numerous partners to accomplish its goals in the community – and in many cases those partnerships involve grant funding to eligible organizations.  Funded partnerships fall into the categories of Collective Impact Partnerships and Basic Needs Partnerships.

Collective Impact Partnerships

These Promise Partnerships have set common agendas that include:

The purpose of UWSL’s collective impact investments is to provide funding to initiate, maintain, scale, or augment strategies that are part of a clear, collective strategic plan and that will result in the achievement of the common agenda objectives in each community. UWSL does not make traditional grants or have a traditional grant application process. UWSL investments are contingent on the existence of a clear strategic plan developed by the partnership for achieving the specific objective(s) of the common agenda that are the subject of the grant.

Leadership for Community Change Partnerships

In partnership with Goldman Sachs, we invite nonprofits working in Salt Lake, Davis, Tooele, and Summit counties to apply for a Leadership for Community Change grant. The goal of this grant is for selected nonprofits to measurably improve an outcome for a group of targeted individuals through the implementation of continuous improvement principles and increased staff capacity.
All applications must be submitted by January 31, 2017.

Community Support Grants

United Way of Salt Lake is accepting applications for Community Infrastructure Grants and Program Support Grants formerly known as Basic Needs grants, to provide support to organizations that meet the basic needs of individuals and families Advocacy Grants will be available on a revised timeline after the 2017 Legislative Session.

Grants are open to organizations addressing these needs in Salt Lake, Summit, Davis and Tooele counties. Grants are funded from July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018.
