United Way Begins Accepting Applications for 2016 Funding

United Way of North Central Arkansas has announced they are starting a new cycle of funding and initiative work for 2016. 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 2016.

To be considered for 2016 funding, applications must be completed and filed with the United Way office by Wednesday, March 31, 2015. 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 2014-2015 Campaign, which will end in June and is just under $60,000 away from reaching its goal of $315,000. 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.
