Three local agencies receive United Way New Venture Grants

The United Way of Logan County Executive Committee recently met and approved the recommendations of the Admissions & Allocations Committee for funding New Venture Grants to three partner agencies totaling $11,648.

These grants were made possible from funding set aside at the conclusion of the 2012 Campaign. Admissions and Allocation Chair Nita Wilkinson said the decisions for their revenue allocations focused on the results of the 2012 Logan County Community Health Risk and Needs Survey. The committee was excited to help support these additional needs in the community.

Members of the Admissions and Allocation committee include Nita Wilkinson; Chair, Krista Adelsberger, John Elizondo, Scott Elliott, Jerry Heaton, Sharon Holsberry, Gail Lirette, Trevor McGlone, Tracy McPherson, Bill Montgomery, Mike Mullins, Jennifer Schwaderer, and David Willoby.

Agency partner recipients for the New Venture Grants include:

Logan County Homeless Shelter - $5,000

The Alliance for Children - $5,000

Logan County Juvenile Detention Center Educational Equipment - $1,648

Executive Director Jim Donnelly said, "The purpose of the New Venture Fund is to provide the UWLC with a mechanism whereby it can respond to unmet funding priority needs in the community throughout the year."

He further stated, "Because of the support of our businesses, companies, and our many residents, the United Way of Logan County was able to fund a total of $517,978 in allocations to agencies in 2013, an 8.4% increase over 2012."

In all, 22 local agencies receive donor dollars, including food pantries, senior centers, rent and utility assistance, disaster relief, prescription medication, hospice care, cancer support, youth activities, and more.
