COMMUNITY IMPACT

Community Impact is how we are investing in impact in our three pillars: basic needs, early childhood success, and workforce development.


We have implemented a Community Impact model to ensure we are moving the needle in areas of most need, based on research and tracked insights. 

BASIC NEEDS

Basic needs are the non-negotiables in life. Access to food so no meal is missed, stable housing, crisis assistance, and needs in response to an emergency are all resources and needs we deserve. 

EARLY CHILDHOOD SUCCESS

Without access to educational opportunities, many children fall behind before they even start kindergarten. Providing children access to books, educational tools, and healthy routine learning environments is essential. 

WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT

Workforce development is the people-focused approach to a community’s economic success. Offering trainings, tools, education and more focused on the workplace allows individuals to strengthen the region’s overall economy.

What is Community Impact?

Community Impact is a business model used by a majority of United Ways worldwide. It allows for local United Ways to systematically create positive social change addressing identified priority community needs

With this model, United Way of Northeast Georgia will grant funds to programs that provide direct services to those areas of most need - our three pillars - and can provide reported data on the success of the programs. These services can range from healthcare services assisting with prenatal care and improving low birth weight statistics, providing access to food and healthy meals, or vocational and work-study training programs. 

Interested in applying for a grant?

Applications for grant funding will be open on May 1, 2020 this year. Eligibility requirements for applying nonprofits are available. Any questions can be directed to Mark Madison, Director of Community Impact, via email
