United Way of the Brown County Area, Inc.

The Venture Grant Program of the United Way of Brown County is an innovative funding approach developed to provide short-term financial support to emerging human service groups whose programs are responding to an established community need. This program makes funds available to non-profit human service agencies or programs.

The Sustainability Grant Program of the United Way of the Brown County Area is an interim-usage fund for those organizations who are an already established agency with an ongoing program who are requesting funds in a "non-allocation" year.  If funded, they would be eligible to apply the following year and enter the 2-year funding cycle for partner agencies.
