United Way of Western Nebraska taking applications for 2014-2015 funding

Posted: Updated:

The United Way of Western Nebraska is currently accepting applications from 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations for 2014-2015 funding.

Applications are available on-line at www.unitedwayofwesternnebraska.com or you can contact the United Way Office at 1517 Broadway, Suite #106, Scottsbluff, Nebraska, or telephone at (308) 635-2522 for more information.

United Way Executive Director Steph Black says the committee looks at how agencies will use the money and the amount of money that is requested.

Last year, the total amount of money requested from applicants was about $402,000.

Black says only about $285,000 was raised and allocated among applicants.

She expects even more money to be requested this year due to federal funding limitations.

"Because grants have been reduced and government funding has been reduced those non-profits are going to have to be out doing more fundraising just like we are and we're all competing for the same money in the community. So we all have to be cognizant to make sure that our donor dollars are going to get the biggest bang for their buck."

All completed applications must be submitted by 4:00 p.m. on Friday, March 7, 2014, for consideration.
