The Power of Partnership
What We Offer Nonprofit Agencies
The only way to achieve our vision of a thriving greater Twin Cities for all is to work alongside and invest in agencies and nonprofit leaders who stand on the frontlines of community-led change. Through these partnerships, we can uncover new opportunities and accelerate transformation for the individuals we serve as one nonprofit community.
With equity and inclusion at the center of our work, we offer grants to organizations working to fill the gaps and impact critical issues in our community.
Partnered with 100+ nonprofit agencies throughout the greater Twin Cities, we facilitate strategic connections that help these organizations collaborate to amplify their efforts.
"Because of the generous COVID-19 assistance from Greater Twin Cities United Way, we have added resources to keep residents safe, healthy, and stably-housed."
"We are grateful for our long partnership with the United Way and in particular for this most recent grant that is helping us advocate so that members of our community can meet their most basic needs."
"There are a lot of needs in the community right now and the United Way funding matches up with those needs."
Community Connection Series
Bringing together nonprofit partners and community leaders, we share learnings, explore new ideas and discuss topics that are critical to helping our community thrive.
Impact of Nonprofit Amplification
"COVID-19 is hitting people experiencing poverty the hardest. During the first two weeks of the pandemic, there was a significant uptick of people coming through our doors who had never received services. We usually have about five new clients each month and now we’re seeing more than 300—and that number is still climbing. "
"I was relieved. Instead of wondering how we could handle the increased demand, the grant allowed us to focus on serving our individuals and families. We are so appreciative of United Way, as well as the community’s generosity, so we can feed our hungry neighbors. "
