United Way's application is complex. If you do not have experience responding to RFP's of this magnitude you will need to contact them for assistance likely more than once. Definitely vet your program with them for alignment before making the investment in time required by the application.


Insightful, Bureaucratic

Be wary of the United Way. They expect grantees to have a handle on finances, be fiscally sound and well managed, and yet their business model is clearly not working. I feel like our organization got caught in their inability to navigate their own business model.


Inadvertently exerts negative influence in the field, Doesn't "get" nonprofits and issues, Bureaucratic, Risk averse
