Community Impact Grants

About United Way Funding

The 2023-2024 grant application process is now CLOSED to new and existing agencies.

To be eligible for the Community Investment Fund through United Way of Coastal Carolina, partner agencies must be in compliance and interested agencies must meet the minimum requirements for eligibility. All interested applicants MUST complete a Letter of Intent through e-CImpact with all attachments by the deadline. If approved, an email notification will be sent to submit the full Grant Application for Funding through e-CImpact. Applicants are required to attend a Grant Orientation workshop, submit the required documents as detailed in the application by the deadline and be available to make a presentation to the Review Panels (members of the Community Impact Council) when requested. Site visits will also be scheduled.

Requests for the Community Investment Fund through this grant application process will be reviewed by trained community volunteers who will make a recommendation to the United Way Board of Directors for funding. Requests for funding less than $4,000 will be presented directly to the Partner Agency Committee for review and will not be required to complete the full grant application. Funding is not guaranteed but will be considered.
