United Way of Whatcom County offers new grant opportunities


BELLINGHAM - United Way of Whatcom County is opening up its funding and interested nonprofits can learn more at a meeting Monday, Jan. 27.

Groups that wish to apply for grants from United Way's Community Impact Fund must attend the event, which is 3:30 p.m. at St. Luke's Community Health Education Center, 3333 Squalicum Parkway.

Money comes from United Way's fall fundraising campaign. In the past, the dollars raised have gone to its 30 partner organizations.

But United Way is offering funding opportunities to other nonprofit organizations in Whatcom County to match new goals in education, income and health in the community.

"Also, it helps use our donor dollars more efficiently," said Tamara Tregoning, director of resource development for United Way.
