United Way Invites Programs Focused on Positive Outcomes to Apply for Funding


Greater Susquehanna Valley United Way invites groups and organizations providing qualified programs that demonstrate positive and measurable differences in the lives of residents of Northumberland, Snyder and Union counties to apply for funding this year. United Way is a channel for funding and resources to programs that have positive and measurable impacts on one or more of six identified issues: improved access to transportation; quality early childhood education; acceptance of diversity and inclusion; prevention and recovery of behavioral health and addiction issues; helping families to be financially stable; and teens.


A representative from organizations wishing to apply for GSV United Way’s 2017 funding cycle are required to attend a mandatory application and outcomes training. Trainings will be held on:

·         Wednesday, October 12th from 8:30 – 9:30 a.m.

·         Thursday, October 13th from 3:00 – 4:00 p.m.


Both trainings will be held in the 2nd floor conference room at The Northumberland National Bank Operations Center (85 King St, Northumberland) and registration can be done online at http://www.gsvuw.org/training or by contacting the office at 570.988.0993.


“United Way’s goal is to work with community partners on the root causes of big issues facing our communities,” said Joanne Troutman, Greater Susquehanna Valley United Way President and CEO. “Together, with a clear focus and an outcomes-based approach, we can achieve much greater results.”
