2016 Community Impact Grant Recipients

This year, United Way NCA granted $840,000 dollars in grants to our member nonprofits. Each year, United Way NCA solicits funding proposals from our member organizations for specific programs in our communities. Funding decisions are made by volunteer, citizen-led task forces in each region that work together with area nonprofits, governments, and business leaders to determine where there are gaps in services and where the funds will do the most good.

All donors to United Way of the National Capital Area have the option of directing their pledge to the Community Impact Fund in one of United Way NCA’s eight counties including Alexandria, Arlington, District of Columbia, Fairfax/Falls Church, Loudoun, Montgomery, Prince George’s and Prince William counties.
