Introducing  United Way of Dodge County Pillar Grants for 2020

Pillar grants are a unique opportunity that differentiates from the traditional nonprofit agency grants United Way provides, in that applicants do not have to be nonprofit organizations to be eligible for funding, although nonprofits are still able and encouraged to apply.  Consideration is open to any and all community members, organizations/groups, schools, etc. that may have a great community project idea or an existing program that they need additional funding for.  The main requirement is that the project must be aimed at improving the health, education and/or financial stability of the communities which United Way of Dodge County supports. Priority will be given to one of United Way’s three strategic impact areas – early childhood education, mental health/AODA treatment, and job readiness/skills training. Also, to ensure proper use of grant funds, pillar grant payments are made on a reimbursement basis after the receipt of paid invoices or on a direct invoice basis.

Applications will be accepted January 1, 2020 and end January 31, 2020 at 5pm.


Early February 2020-United Way of Dodge County Pillar Grant Committee and Executive            Committee will review all completed applications.

February 26, 2020-Full Board will receive recommendations and will move through the approval process.

Early March-Approved grantees will be notified.

* Please note:  If Pillar Grant Committee or United Way Board has additional inquiries, you/your organization may be asked to present your grant proposal.
