Snohomish County recently announced a one-year grant program for community organizations focused on “breaking the cycle of poverty.” Letters of intent must be submitted between March 1, 2016 and March 15, 2016. Consistent with the United Way’s heart for collaboration, the grant program seeks organizations providing “integrated services” to increase their collective impact.
The United Way remains one of the most dynamic organizations making a positive impact on communities world-wide. The organization traces its roots to Denver, Colorado, when a priest, a rabbi, two ministers, and a female volunteer founded the Charity Organization Society, the predecessor to the United Way.
In Snohomish County, the United Way began in 1940 as the Everett Community Chest. Today, it remains focused on “leading positive change that transforms our community and improves people’s lives in Snohomish County.”
