The YWL proudly supports many local charitable organizations and volunteer agencies through funding and service. We are happy to announce that we are accepting applications for our 2022-2023.
2022-2023 Giving Theme
Investing In Children To Build Strong Communities
We ask you to be as detailed as possible with respect to specific needs and their related costs. The criteria we use to evaluate applications includes the following:
How well the application fits within the giving theme
The general stability and quality of the organization seeking funding from the YWL.
The overall impact of the proposed project. Data on past success rates, number of people who will be helped etc. is always useful.
We welcome both large and small requests. Grants are awarded with the stipulation that the money must be spent in full within one year of receipt. The YWL Charity Research Committee will meet in the fall of 2022 to begin our evaluation process. We will decide final appropriations after our year-end fundraiser in late May 2023. Funds will be distributed in June 2023 and all applicants will be notified of our decision at that time. Please note that we only fund program costs, we do not fund general overhead/operating costs.
