Funding Opportunities

Trident United Way Community Engagement Grants

Trident United Way is pleased to announce the reopening of the Community Engagement Grant opportunity, with funding up to $3500 for Activities in 2023. This funding pool will promote community engagement best practices for nonprofits in Berkeley, Charleston, and Dorchester counties. It is intended to supplement community engagement efforts in the Tri-County area helping organizations to build capacity, strengthen partnerships, and improve systems. 

Community Engagement refers to the process an organization uses to engage and connect the community for the purpose of advancing their work or advancing toward a common goal. Some examples of engagement activities include episodic events (health fairs, financial education workshops, etc.), episodic outreach, volunteer engagement and trainings aligned with TUW’s areas of focus in Education, Financial Stability and Health. 

Please note that the proposed activity must take place between March, 2023 and December 30, 2023.
