Becoming a United Way of King County Grantee

See a list of current United Way of King County grantees and amounts.

United Way of King County operates on a July 1 through June 30 fiscal year.

We have recently released our fiscal year 2015 Strategy and Investment Plan. The Plan outlines the strategies, goals and investments United Way intends to make in fiscal year 2015, (July 1, 2014-June 30, 2015), and includes information on application processes in early 2014.

We periodically solicit applications for funding. Funding is open competitively when we are seeking to expand the breadth of applicants beyond those grantees currently funded in those specific outcomes. This allows us to make decisions about funding to address demographic or geographic disparities in need and funding and to improve our impact.
