United Way NWT has opened applications for a $240,000 community investment fund, the largest the charity says it has ever offered.
Last year’s fund was worth $195,000. In a press release, United Way said the generosity of donors in the NWT and beyond had allowed that sum to increase.
Registered non-profits in the territory have until December 2 apply for either a single-year grant of up to $7,500 or a multi-year grant of $15,000 per year for three years.
Funding will be released in March 2023.
Applicants must have a community project in mind.
The charity says the fund’s three focus areas are moving people out of poverty and meeting basic human needs; improving access to social and health-related support services; and improving access to early childhood learning and development and helping kids do well at school.
