The United Way of the Bradford Area is able to continually add agencies and programs to its list of funded recipients, thanks to the quarterly Community Innovations funding stream. This past quarter, officials at the United Way saw an increase of requests from new and past applicants.
“Being able to fund 11 programs – four of which had not received funding previously – in the second-quarter of the Community Innovations funding process is a testament to the impact of our donors’ generosity,” said Marcia Avey, UWBA board member and Community Innovations committee chair. “The United Way of the Bradford Area now funds 41 programs through 22 agencies, which impact our entire community.”
The recipients are: Bradford Landmark Society – Crook Farm school program; Bradford Youth Hockey League – AED heart device; CARE for Children – crib safety program; Chapel Ridge – 5th annual senior health and wellness fair; CASA of McKean County – program funds; Children’s Advocacy Center of McKean County – program materials; Dickinson Mental Health – summer outing; Growing with Grace Christian Preschool – program materials; McKean County Cooperative Extension – program materials; McKean County 4-H – school enrichment programs; and McKean County Historical Society – art program.
Local non-profit, 501(c)3 agencies may submit a request for up to $1,500 per quarter. The Community Innovations funding category supports programs independent of those benefitting from monthly allocations that have the potential to impact the local community. The deadline for third-quarter applications is July 1, 2014.
