United Way of Greater Fall River is pleased to announce 2024-2025 Impact Grants.

United Way of Greater Fall River’s Impact Grant process is designed to fund smaller, new, and/or innovative programs that fill identified gaps in service in Greater Fall River in the areas of Health, Education, and Financial Stability. The programs funded by this process align with needs identified in local Community Health Needs Assessments and with United Way Worldwide goals. Basic Needs grants are funded through a different application process and are not reviewed at this time.

Impact Grant applications are read and reviewed by a volunteer committee of community members. Reviewers utilize the Impact Grant rubric to assess applications and consider the funding available, as well as any restrictions on available funds.

To achieve our goals, United Way of Greater Fall River will focus our resources on a limited set of investment areas where organizations can make the greatest impact and contribute to significant outcomes in the lives of the individuals in our community.

Please review the United Way of Greater Fall River Impact Grant Handbook before applying.  Therein you will find application guidelines, goals and alignments with United Way Worldwide, United Way Racial Equity and Impact Strategies, the scoring rubric for this process, and the application questions.

Impact Grant applications are due Monday, February 12, 2024 at 5pm. No late applications will be accepted or considered.
