Fall 2020 tuw Community Engagement Grants:

Update as of 7/16/20

Like many organizations, Trident United Way is evaluating economic and philanthropic forecasts due to this uncertain time and impacts of COVID-19. We are reviewing grants capacity as campaigns and giving have been impacted by the pandemic. 

As a result, the Fall 2020 application cycle for Community Engagement Grants has been suspended due to actions recommended by the Community Impact Committee and approved by the TUW Board of Directors. Therefore, there will be no CE Grants awarded in January of 2021.
