Campaign 2020

Your generous contribution will enable us to keep fighting for the health, education, and financial stability of every person

Each year the United Way of Daviess County allocates money from their campaign to agency partners through a grant process.  You will find the forms and instructions needed to complete the grant request below.  The grant application is due on January 15, 2020.  If you are interested in applying, please click on each of the attachments below to fill out. You will need to submit 3 hard copies of all requested materials by Jan. 15th either to our location of 200 E. Van Trees, 2nd Floor, mail to our P.O. Box 224, or you can bring them to our next CROP meeting scheduled for Dec. 10th (if completed by then).

A couple small changes to note. We added "Impact Project Work" to one of the options to apply for, utilizing the same existing questions asked and we have moved the collaborative opportunity into its own grant request, also using the same questions from the original grant. This will be a $10,000 gift you can apply for and you can apply for both grants. The actual questions and grant material are almost identical as previous years. If you have any questions, please contact our office. at 812-254-1038.

COVID-19 Relief Initiative Coming to United Way of Daviess County

Daviess, IN – United Way of Daviess County is pleased to announce that it has been approved to receive a $200,000 COVID-19 Economic Relief Initiative Grant, made possible through a partnership between Lilly Endowment, Inc. and Indiana United Ways, the state professional association of which United Way of Daviess County is a member.  These special funds will be used to boost the efforts of selected area human and social service nonprofits on the frontlines of the Covid-19 pandemic. 

United Way of Daviess County has been a key convener and coordinator of our community’s response to meet human needs for decades. Even before this crisis, we knew that 27% in Daviess County were not able to make ends meet - despite working. Without a robust local nonprofit safety net, those needs are bound to become even more dire. Thanks to generous support from the Lilly Endowment, Inc., we are now more strongly positioned to help our community’s nonprofits deal with the immediate impacts of Covid-19,” said Board Chair, Eric Lane, for United Way of Daviess County. 

The COVID-19 Economic Relief Initiative Grant calls for United Ways that receive funding to leverage partnerships and relationships to better meet Covid-related essential and basic needs, which could include safe, emergency childcare, and to address other Covid-19 critical issues as they emerge. Specifically, United Way of Daviess County, plans to provide funding through 3-4 grant phases (last phase ending in March 31, 2022.  The United Way of Daviess County and the The Daviess County Community Foundation have partnered in this effort and will begin accepting funding requests from area human and social service nonprofits in good standing.  The first phase will be open within the next 30 days with more information to follow soon.  Grants will be available through The Daviess County Community Foundation grant portal.  As always, feel free to contact either office with additional questions!
