NONPROFITS - GET OUT AND VOTE

FUNDING 

United Way of Westchester and Putnam is now accepting financial requests from local nonprofits to support program or operational efforts. The United Way of Westchester and Putnam Community Impact Fund supports local nonprofits serving the needs of the underprivileged, marginalized, or ALICE (those who are employed but are living paycheck-to-paycheck) populations in Westchester or Putnam Counties. United Way is offering grants between $5,000 and $10,000. 

"The United Way has a long tradition of working with and supporting the nonprofit community. Through this Community Impact grant initiative, we hope to support their ongoing efforts serving the 40% of our neighbors living in poverty or paycheck-to-paycheck,” said Tom Gabriel, President and CEO of UWWP. 

The funding can be used in two ways: 1) to support programs in the areas of education, financial stability, or health that benefit underprivileged, marginalized, or ALICE populations in Westchester or Putnam counties, or 2) to support operational expenses of local nonprofits in Westchester or Putnam County whose mission relates to improving the education, financial stability, or health of underprivileged, marginalized or ALICE populations. The submission deadline, which includes the application and the required attachments, is 4 PM on May 23, 2022. The application can be found online at www.uwwp.org/community-impact-grant. Questions can be emailed to fbutcher@uwwp.org.

AGENCY SPOTLIGHT: LATINO U

 

LUCA Changemakers Visit Washington, DC

Latino U College Access Founder and Strategic Growth Officer, Shirley Acevedo Buontempo, along with three of LUCA Scholars - Andrés Castillo Quintana, Princeton University '18; Katya Juarez, Middlebury College '24, and Kate Hidalgo, University of Rochester '25 - traveled to Washington, DC to attend the UnidosUS Changemakers Summit: “Redefine the Moment: Leading on Our Shared Future.”

The event brought together leaders committed to advocating for issues important to the Latino community. Ambassadors heard from policy experts on panels discussing the topics of health, education, economic policy, and immigration. A special policy briefing from White House officials helped educate them on the most important issues facing our community today. The Summit concluded by inviting participants to meet with their government officials.
