UNITED for Education
When you invest with United Way of Cass-Clay you’re investing in the future.
United Way of Cass-Clay (United Way) has made long-standing investments in our community that support education goals. In 2013, United Way announced a new three year collaborative approach to making investments called the UNITED for Education Collaborative that began to address some of the root causes of academic disparities between low socio-economic students and all students. Data continually demonstrates that these academic achievement disparities create long-term economic development challenges for our community; investments made early in a child and families’ life will have greater long-term return on investment for the community. United Way is now seeking to replicate and scale demonstrable and innovative approaches to provide opportunities for children to succeed.
United Way will be opening a grant application cycle and accepting requests for proposal (RFP) for a three year funding cycle (2017-2019). For more information, click here.
For questions regarding this collaborative, please contact: Thomas Hill, Community Impact Director, firstname.lastname@example.org, 701.237.5050
