Community Impact Application


The Community Impact Fund is one of the ways that UWSWNM makes strategic investments to drive measurable, sustainable change in Basic Needs, Education and Financial Stability in our region.

The Community Impact Fund is composed of contributions from donors who entrust UWSWNM with combining their gifts with the donations of others to invest in dynamic approaches and proven programs to create lasting, positive change. The process of investing includes an informed review by dedicated volunteers who help us ensure the most positive impact with the dollars raised.

Please note: The actual dollars invested during the 2019-2020 Community Impact Fund are contingent upon our 2018 campaign results.
