United Way of North Central Arkansas starting a new cycle of funding and initiative work for 2018

United Way of North Central Arkansas has announced they are starting a new cycle of funding and initiative

work for 2018. Interested non-profit agencies working in the areas of education, financial stability and health

are invited to submit an application for United Way funding for 2018.

To be considered for 2018 funding, applications must be completed and filed with the United Way office no

later than April 06, 2017 at 3:00 pm. An applying organization must be a non-profit, tax-exempt charitable

organization providing a direct and meaningful service to the people of North Cleburne, Independence, Izard,

Sharp and/or Stone Counties, and must have been in existence for at least 2 years.

“This is the most exciting part of our work,” said United Way Executive Director, Allison Phelps, “Putting the

dollars we raised back into our community to provide much needed services makes the fundraising we do

year-round very rewarding.” United Way’s yearly campaign funds partner agencies and initiatives dedicated to

improving the quality of life in their respective communities.

United Way of North Central Arkansas is in the middle of their 2016-2017 Campaign, which will be closing

soon and is just under $10,000 away from reaching its fundraising goal. Your generous support of United Way

helps our community all year long. United Way resources help children and youth succeed, strengthen and

support families, promote self-sufficiency and support vulnerable and aging populations.

For those in need of an application for funding or for those interested in giving to the United Way community

fund, contact the United Way office at (870)793-5991, [email protected]
