4th Qtr. Community Innovations

The United Way of the Bradford Area has awarded more than $7,000 to six local organizations through community innovations grant funding for the fourth quarter of 2013.

The recipients are:  Bradford Ecumenical Home, Inc.’s intergenerational art program; CARE for Children smart board installation; Destinations Bradford’s medical gas cards and care closet; Dickinson Mental Health holiday events; Evergreen Elm, Inc.’s swimming therapy program; and The Salvation Army’s energy assistance program.

Local non-profit, 501(c)3, health and human service agencies may submit a request for up to $1,500 per quarter.  The category supports programs independent of those benefitting from monthly allocations that have the potential to impact the local community, encouraging innovative approaches to meeting health and human service needs, and produce specific and measurable outcomes.

Community Innovations grant applications are due on a quarterly basis, and are part of three categories of funding from the annual United Way campaign. For more questions about United Way, or to make a contribution to the 2013-2014 campaign, visit www.uwbanews.org or call 814-368-6181.
