Special to Iredell Free News
The United Way of Iredell County Endowment Committee is seeking proposals that build up the Iredell County community in new ways. In particular, the committee is looking for proposals which will focus on one or more of the following areas:
♦ Create long term solutions for individuals who are experiencing housing inadequacy;
♦ Strengthen the education system by supporting those who teach our children in daycares and in school; and
♦ Improve our communities by directly teaching a life skill that will advance our neighbors’ quality of life.
All proposals must be written in letter format on letterhead with a detailed project budget and sustainability plan attached. Projects already funded by United Way of Iredell County will not be considered. No building or infrastructure proposals will be considered.
Proposals should be above $25,000 in value and be written by a nonprofit agency.
The Endowment Committee has a total budget of around $150,000 and would like to select several recipients. We encourage you to take this into consideration when creating your budgets. Any proposals which are collaborative in nature are highly encouraged and will be considered strongly. Continued reporting will be required to United Way of Iredell County.
All proposals will be due no later than noon on September 15. Funds will be awarded in mid to late November.
Please direct questions and submissions to Sara Helmick at SHelmick@UWIredell.org.
