Community Grants

United Way St. Croix Valley funds approximately 45 nonprofit agency programs in the areas of education, financial stability and health in Pierce, Polk and St. Croix counties, as well as parts of Burnett and Washburn counties. Although we are making strides in all of our supported communities, there is still much work to be done--as much as 41% of people in Pierce county are not able to make ends meet--and we can't do it without your support.

Which Form Do I Use?

Effective January 2018, United Way St. Croix Valley will once again be utilizing e-CImpact, our online grant management software.  Partner agencies are issued login information.  For assistance accessing e-CImpact or navigating the system, please contact Lara Otsuka at 715/377-0203 ext. 108.

United Way St. Croix Valley will conduct limited face-to-face reviews during the 2018-2019 grant cycle.  Select agencies will be notified by March 7, 2019.  

School-based programs should use the School Request Form. The amount of grant money available for each district is based on the amount of unrestricted donations made by faculty and staff. Superintendents will be notified of the amount available once all school campaigns are complete. Details are available at the School Funding Announcement.
