Northfield Area United Way seeks to improve quality of life in our community through effective programs in:
- Financial Stability
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.
Priority consideration is given to programs that serve the greatest need and help the greatest number of community members in the three 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, 2019 to June 30, 2020). Northfield Area United Way’s service area includes Northfield, Dundas, Lonsdale, Montgomery, Dennison, Webster and Kilkenny.
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
