For the 2018–2019 fiscal year, United Way of Tarrant County allocated more than $13 million in funding to partners in the community, including almost $1 million for our new Systems Change funding model, which is part of the organization’s new strategic plan.

Community, corporate, government and foundation donations to United Way of Tarrant County make it possible for the organization to invest resources toward our community’s most pressing issues.

Community investments include $6 million in donor-designated gifts; $2 million for Safety Net programs, which constitute a network of services offered to the community through the United Way of Tarrant County’s system of partners; and $3.7 million for Scalable Community Change, which includes programs targeted at communities rather than individuals. This is in addition to the previously mentioned $969,996 in Systems Change funding. Women United and Veterans Fund dollars invest another $382,295 in programs impacting those populations, bringing the total to more than $13 million. Each initiative works to address distinct needs in the community.

ALLOCATIONS

Our allocations process begins with announcing our Requests For Proposals (RFPs) via email and social media encouraging organizations to visit our website to download and apply. If appropriate, a bidder’s conference is held to inform applicants and address any questions before the completion of the proposal. Responses are considered and ranked by a volunteer Review Panel. The panel’s recommendations move forward to the Community Investment Cabinet for its approval for funding. The United Way Board of Directors then provides final approval.

REQUESTS FOR PROPOSALS

The United Way of Tarrant County (UWTC) is now soliciting proposals for the Veterans Fund.

United Way launched its Veterans Fund in 2013 with a generous corporate contribution by Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company and an additional gift from Bell. The funding is dedicated to supporting military service members who are returning to civilian life in the Tarrant County area, including counseling, career and financial coaching, addiction treatment and other high-priority needs.
