Grinnell United Way Invites Local Organizations to Apply for Funding


Grinnell United Way invites local organizations that serve Grinnell residents to apply to receive funding for 2024.

The Grinnell United Way is helping build a stronger and more supportive community by partnering with local organizations that share our common goal of developing solutions for dealing with education, financial stability, and health for residents in the Grinnell area.

Ashley Grundler, secretary of the board, indicates the organization focuses on the community’s toughest challenges and strives to partner with organizations that are actively developing solutions to provide a better quality of life. “Grinnell United Way wants to advance the common good in Grinnell by providing a coordinated fundraising effort to support a number of non-profits in our community,” says Grundler. “We currently support the efforts of 11 organizations that serve more than 3,500 Grinnell residents. We are always interested in seeing applications from new or different partners, so we encourage you to apply.”

Any organization under Internal Revenue Code Section 501 (c)(3) as tax exempt and provides services to individuals in the greater Grinnell area is eligible to receive funding from Grinnell United Way. Applications are due Friday, June 16, 2023. To submit an application, please visit

Grinnell United Way is managed by a volunteer board committed to advancing its mission, with 97% of all funds raised going directly to its partner agencies. Last year the organization granted more than $110,000 to 11 different local agencies serving more than 3,500 residents of Grinnell.
