United Way Heartland Region’s mission is to make an IMPACT in our community and to make a difference in the lives of others. We are a local non-profit organization funded by thousands of individuals and businesses that generously share with their community by contributing to the annual United Way Campaign. United Way Heartland Region of Huron is an organization of local volunteers that in turn reaches out to the organizations/programs with financial support for services that make lasting changes in the lives of children, adults, In reviewing applications for the United Way Grant, the United Way Heartland Region is most interested in programs that will improve life within the Huron community. Examples of programs that focus on improving life in the community would include: Nurturing Children, Strengthening Families, Enriching the Lives of Seniors, Increasing Self Sufficiency, Promoting Health and Healing, and Providing Emergency Services. Programs focused around the core areas of Education, Income, and Health and those that impact a broad constituency in the region and programs requesting funding operational expenses rather than capital expenses are given preference.
Organizations requesting a grant must demonstrate the need it addresses are not already being met in the region. United Way Heartland Region encourages cooperation among existing entities in the region.
