United Way is not accepting grant applications at this time.

Thank you for your interest in partnering with United Way of Southeast Missouri. United Way is a worldwide nonprofit that fights for the health, education, and income of all citizens. Each United Way supports a specific region and has the independence to manage its own grant cycle and determine which programs to invest in that will have the greatest impact on the community. While many United Ways award grants annually or bi-annually, UWSEMO opted for a three-year cycle in 2016 to give its funded partners more budgeting stability and a better opportunity to measure and demonstrate impact. Our next three-year funding cycle will begin July 1, 2022. Our application process will begin near the beginning of 2022. Please follow our social media or subscribe to our monthly email to ensure you receive notice of when the application process begins.
