HIGH POINT, N.C. – To spur development of new programs serving critical human-service needs in the Piedmont area, United Way of Greater High Point is launching a “Venture Grants” initiative.
The group grants, which will total $60,000, are designed to provide one-time funding to agencies developing new projects or programs that plug gaps in the region’s human services.
While the funds cannot be used for well-established programs, or to replace lost funds, Venture Grant dollars can be used to expand and enhance existing programs or to modify newer efforts.
Eligible groups must be able to demonstrate that their planned project or program is sustainable, and that outcomes can be measured.
United Way is holding an information session for interested groups July 10 at 9 a.m. at its offices at 201 Church Ave. in High Point. Application information is available online.
