The United Way of Rutherford and Cannon Counties has announced that it has started its process to recruit 2013-2014 partner programs.
Organizations that have a 501(c)3 IRS status that wish to partner with United Way for its next fiscal year may submit a letter of intent at www.uwrutherford.org. All letters of intent must submitted by Oct. 31 for consideration for the upcoming fiscal year.
The program that is requesting partnership with United Way must serve at least one of United Way's impact areas of education, income, health or rebuilding lives and provide service in Rutherford or Cannon counties.
Organizations submitting a letter of intent will be notified no later than Nov. 30 as to whether they will be extended an invitation to apply to partner with United Way. Applications will be made available to those organizations in December.
During the current fiscal year, United Way is partnering with 49 programs, including 10 grant partners, 36 partner agencies, and three initiatives, such as the 2-1-1 information and referral services line.
United Way works to identify issues in the community, develop partnerships with organizations that have the ability to address those issues, implement a plan of action, and measure results that are reported to the community.
