United Way announces grant funding training

Posted on August 19, 2019 by Staff reports

United Way of West Florida (UWWF) is beginning its annual partner agency certification process. Becoming a certified partner is the first step to become eligible to apply for grant funding through UWWF’s Community Investment Process.

Any nonprofit agency interested in becoming a United Way partner is required to attend one certification training session. At these sessions, attendees will learn the types of documentation and forms required to apply for certification and will walk through how to upload these to the online platform used for certification.

Trainings will be held at the following locations and times. To reserve your spot at one of these sessions, please email Partnership Specialist, Rebecca Cleary, at rebecca.cleary@uwwf.org.
