United Way Venture Grant- Now Accepting Applications

United Way of the Brown County Area's Venture Grant Program awards special project grants, up to $2,500, to non-profit organizations in the Brown area with a 501(c)(3) designation, government status or governed by a fiscal host that posesses this status. Projects that qualify for application should address an un-met need in one or more the United Way of the Brown County's focus areas (Education, Income, Health or Basic Needs).  Both current United Way-funded Partner Agencies and non-funded agencies may apply.

Venture Grants are intended for a new, one-time, clearly defined, special project or program that enhances the mission of the recipient organization. Venture Grants will not support operating expenses.
