Grant Application Season

Northfield Area United Way’s 2018 grant application process is now underway. Tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organizations or governmental units performing service in the areas of education, health or human services are invited to apply.

Applicants should address a demonstrated need, explain how the organization helps solve the need and how it measures results, and quantify the organization’s success.  Northfield Area United Way will consider quantifiable outcomes, not simply activities, when reviewing applications.

We give priority consideration to programs that serve the greatest need and help the greatest number of community members in our areas of focus.

Grants may be given to support an organization’s operations and/or active programs providing direct services to those in need in the Northfield Area United Way service area during the grant year (July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019). Northfield Area United Way’s service area includes Northfield, Dundas, Lonsdale, Montgomery, Dennison, Webster and Kilkenny.

Applications are due March 16, 2018. Grant application information and forms are available online at Applicants will be required to make an in-person presentation in early May to a panel of community volunteers as part of the process.

Organizations that have not received Northfield Area United Way funding in the past are invited to apply. Past grants do not guarantee future funding. For more information, please visit or contact
