Salina Area United Way Funded Partners
Joining Salina Area United Way as a Funded Partner means joining a partnership where the end goal of impact is NOW. We are so excited to continue the original style of Funded Partners, which was an impactful business plan for community nonprofits to greatly benefit from.
Hear from local nonprofit organizations on the importance of the return to Funded Partners:
"As an organization who has historically both supported the efforts of the Salina Area United Way and received funding, the return of Funded Partners is critical. The funding review process shouldn't be taken lightly. It validates an organization's financial management, engages community members to maximize services and verifies the agency meets a unique need to make the Salina area a better place to live!"
- Lori Blake | CAPS Executive Director
"Supporting the community and making Salina stronger is only possible when organizations and individuals come together with a common goal. The Funded Partner program allows the United Way to provide nonprofit organizations with funds that we can put into our budgets and make our programs and services possible. As the needs continue to grow, together with the Salina Area United Way and their donors, nonprofits can rise to the challenge."
- Angie Lassley | YMCA President/CEO
"Being a recipient of United Way funding, over the past decades, has been instrumental in the growth and sustainability of Big Brothers Big Sisters. The United Way's funding model allows access to funds local agencies may not be able to otherwise obtain, and with the return of Funded Partners the impact just keeps growing! Funded Partners provides sustainable funding for our agency, which allows Big Brothers Big Sisters of Salina mentoring programs to serve more at-risk youth and increase our agency's effectiveness in our community. As a relevant community solution, our agency is thankful for the return of Funded Partners as it allows access to funding opportunities and resources for outreach that support the Big Brothers Big Sisters mission."
