Opportunities for Nonprofit Organizations

A Community United - Working Together Towards A Common Goal

Inland Empire United Way is pleased to partner with a network of strong local non-profit organizations that share our commitment to strengthening the lives of those in the Inland Empire by focusing on the areas of Education, Health and Financial Stability.

Funds are provided on a competitive basis for programs providing results-oriented services to persons residing in Inland Empire United Way’s service area zip codes only, and grants are reviewed on an annual basis.


Inland Empire United Way’s funding to Community Impact Partners is determined by an independent group of community volunteers following a formal request for proposal (RFP) process with specific timelines and identified outcome areas.

Recommendations made by the Community Impact Advisory Council for program funding are then approved by the Inland Empire United Way Board of Directors. All programs are monitored throughout the funding year to ensure they produce positive, measurable results.
