Agency Funding Requests
FY 2014/2015

Dear Fellow Charities:

United Way of Merced County strives to advance the common good by supporting vital programs within our three major focus areas: EDUCATION, INCOME and HEALTH. We believe that these are the building blocks for a good life. Because when a person has a quality education they can achieve their potential, acquire a livable wage to meet their family’s basic needs, establish financial stability; as well as the knowledge and resources to make healthy decisions.

We are now at the beginning of the cycle for determining community investment funding by United Way for 2014/2015. We want to continue to provide financial assistance for the great programs that help those in need in Merced County in the three major focus areas.

The process for requesting funding and the eligibility criteria are accessed with the links below.

If you have questions, please contact Fred Buckingham at 383-4242 or email him at fred@unitedwaymerced.org


Carol Bowman
Executive Director
