How do we determine where funding goes?
Thousands of generous community members make annual gifts to United Way's Community Investment Fund. United Way of Kankakee and Iroquois Counties allocates these gifts via grants to local organizations working to create lasting, measurable change in the areas of education, health and financial stability.
Local nonprofits serving Kankakee and Iroquois Counties are invited to apply anually. The grant process is competitive every year. Funding is based on recommendations from community investment volunteers, with feedback provided by our Community Impact Committee, and overseen by the United Way Board of Directors.
