Nonprofit Partners
Standing side by side
with our community partners

nonprofit partners

Every year, we partner with hundreds of nonprofits throughout Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey, helping them deliver invaluable services to people most in need.

Last year alone, we funded more than 150 of the most effective poverty-fighting non-profits organizations across our region. 

More than just providing funds, we work to strengthen the nonprofit sector by offering a range of support and technical assistance so they can drive lasting results.

We work side by side so that our partners have the resources and tools they need to succeed. If they falter, we’re there to help. If they need guidance, we’re there to fuel their success. We’re committed to working together to ensure every dollar invested impacts the lives of our neighbors.

Are you interested in becoming a community partner?

Is your nonprofit making an impact on education, income or economic mobility to help our neighbors overcome poverty?

Then we encourage you to stay up to date and apply for our next grant cycle. Our process starts by seeking out the best and most promising nonprofits. After completing the application process, new partners are selected to receive three-year Core Impact grants, as well as participate in United Way-led programs and local collaborations designed to increase capacity and meet currently unaddressed needs.

We evaluate our partners based on criteria including the history of results, overall impact-based outcomes, and financial health.  All nonprofits selected as partners are carefully vetted, tracked and held accountable.

To qualify, partners must:

  • Be an IRS-certified 501(c)3 nonprofit organization,
  • Have a minimum two-year service provision track record in the region,
  • Adhere to additional qualifications listed in the eligibility requirements


Our grant cycle is currently closed. Please check back for updates.
