United Way of Greater Atlanta is on a journey to improve the lives of children and families throughout the Greater Atlanta area. Nearly half a million children in our region live in communities with low or very low child well-being. Through our Child Well-Being Mission Fund, we invest in nonprofit partners that provide the supports necessary to strengthen the community. We recognize that it takes many different nonprofit partners to meet the complex needs of families.
In December 2022, United Way of Greater Atlanta awarded grants to Cycle 2 grantees. Awards were distributed to organizations that advance strategies within the following Investment Priority areas: Strong Learners, College and Career Ready, Economic Stability and Brighter Future. For this round of investments, multi-year awards were allocated to grantees funded through the United for Racial Equity and Healing Fund. If you have questions about our RFP process, please submit them here.
