Impact Grants

United Way of Greater Fall River is pleased to announce the 2020-2021 Impact Grant Process.

Impact Grants range from $1,000 to $10,000.  Impact grants support programs that are new, innovative, or support families in the UWGFR service area: Fall River, Westport, Assonet, Somerset, Swansea, Tiverton, and Little Compton.  Impact Grants must align with the pillars of United Way of Greater Fall River: health, education, and financial stability. Agencies are encouraged to use the Impact Grant rubric to guide their request.

Those interested in applying for the 2020-2021 Impact Grant Process must complete the Letter of Interest Form.  In addition to a 500 word project summary, basic contact information, proof of 501(c)3 status, Certificate of Solicitation, and pages 1-11 of the most recent Form 990 (if applicable) must be submitted.  Agencies selected to submit a complete grant application will be notified directly.
