United Way of Nobles County
The mission of the United Way of Nobles County is Improving lives in Nobles County. We fund non-profit agencies that help people within our community through programs and services with a focus on education, health, and financial stability. Grant applications are accepted March 1 - April 30 for funding in the following year.
Diversity, equity & Inclusion statement
"We are honored to serve communities with rich diversity. As part of our ongoing commitment to serve and provide equitable opportunities for all, we must recognize and be ever cognizant of the disparities imposed upon Black and Indigenous People and People of Color and the debilitating effects these communities have faced as a result of a history of oppression, structural racism, and ethnic discrimination. As a chapter of the United Way, we denounce all forms of racial/ethnic discrimination and any oppression that intentionally or inadvertently marginalizes a population of people.
As part of this ongoing work, we will: Undergo continuous Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) training; Review grant applications with consideration of equitable outcomes; and continuously seek a board of directors composed of members representative of the communities in which we are all committed to serve."
We are proud to sponsor the Imagination Library for Nobles County!
Children age birth until their 5th birthday receive an age appropriate book in the mail each month. There is no cost to participate in the program. United Way covers the cost of the postage and books which is about $25 per child per year. Contact our office to sign up or for more info on the program.
