This article from last week's Mountain Xpress does a nice job highlighting the ongoing struggle nonprofit organizations face securing the resources they need to achieve their mission. Several of the organizations in the article receive grants from United Way’s competitive grant making process. There are more than 30 other organizations that receive competitive grants from United Way as well, thanks to the generous donors in our community that support the Community Investment Fund. Each of these organizations faces the ongoing struggle of raising money so they can make this community a better place. These leaders work tirelessly to keep their doors open and the services available to those that need them. Our hats are off to them.
