The start of something rewarding

United Way of Greater Atlanta invests in partners that are working to address the unique and growing needs of children and families in our communities.

Our Funding Priority Areas

Through our four investment priorities, we provide funding to various nonprofit organizations that align with our mission and strategies to achieve it. When new funding becomes available, funding opportunities will be announced through our website.

Organizations We Invest In

United Way of Greater Atlanta believes access to basic needs is fundamental and essential to improving overall child well-being. Priority will be given to proposals that include provisions for meeting the basic needs of residents, including access to food, shelter, comprehensive healthcare and transportation. In addition, all requests for funding must demonstrate how collaboration and communication will be fostered or improved in communities as a way of sharing resources and connecting residents to available support.

What We Will Fund:

  •  Innovative initiatives that inspire systems change in targeted communities and that positively impact family and child well-being in one of the four investment priority areas
  • Direct services that offer specific, tailored programs to improve outcomes in our investment priority areas
  • Smart and thoughtful strategies that build the capacity of nonprofit organizations working in one of our four investment priority areas, or build the capacity of communities in place-based work

What We Won’t Fund:

  • Work with a focus that is outside of the United Way of Greater Atlanta’s service area
  • Capital Campaigns
  • Politically motivated efforts or lobbying
  • Initiatives that are not supported by data and evidence-based practices
