Local organizations eligible for Grinnell United Way grants

Grinnell United Way invites local organizations that serve Grinnell residents to apply to receive funding.

“Grinnell United Way advances the common good in Grinnell through our partner agencies, supported by our generous donors,” said board president Rachael Kinnick. “Together, we use the key building blocks of education, income, and health to improve these people’s lives by dealing with the underlying causes of problems.”

Any organization recognized under Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3) as tax exempt and provides services to individuals in the greater Grinnell area is eligible to receive funding from Grinnell United Way. Applications are due Friday, May 20, 2016. To submit an application, visit http://grinnellunitedway.org/agencies/apply-2/.

Grinnell United Way has a diverse set of partner agencies. The Social Entrepreneurs of Grinnell, Poweshiek County Clover Kids, and Grinnell Historical Museum are a few of the organizations that have partnered with Grinnell United Way in recent years, joining longtime partners such as Grinnell Community Daycare & Preschool and Mid-Iowa Community Action.

“We call on the entire Grinnell community to help spread the word about applying for funding,” said Kinnick. “We seek partners who will live united with us, becoming partners in changing lives in Grinnell.”

Grinnell United Way is particularly interested in how organizations address education, public health, and poverty in Grinnell.

“As a board, we have become keenly aware of how issues of public health, education, and poverty impact our community,” said Kinnick. “We believe in the caring power of our community to help those affected by mental illness and addiction and want to build on our base of partner agencies to do the work our generous donors support. We want to change lives in Grinnell.”

Because Grinnell United Way is managed by a volunteer board committed to advancing its mission, over 98% of all funds raised go directly to its partner agencies to use for services in Grinnell. Last year the Grinnell United Way granted $130,000 to 15 different local agencies which served over 4,600 people in Grinnell in 2015.

Meet the partners – Social Entrepreneurs of Grinnell

The following is a piece about Social Entrepreneurs of Grinnell as part of a series by Grinnell United Way to help tell the stories of our partner organizations and their operations in the Grinnell area.

Social Entrepreneurs of Grinnell (SEG) seeks to strengthen individuals’ economic well-being by empowering them to pursue financial opportunities or minimize the impacts of potentially derailing intermittent financial expenses. SEG accomplishes their mission by providing affordable loans to individuals who lack access to financing from traditional institutions.

One factor which perpetuates poverty is the lack of available capital to meet unexpected expenses. For individuals living on the edge of poverty, pay-day loans and rent-to-own businesses are often the only available institutions. As a non-profit group, SEG is able to provide loans interest free and therefore loan more effectively for poverty reduction.

One of the main success of SEG is reducing the barriers between education and individuals who have difficulty finding a job which pays a living wage. SEG’s small loans allow members in our community to pursue greater education in the hopes of eventually finding better employment.

Meet the partners – Central Iowa Family Planning

The following is a piece about Central Iowa Family Planning as part of a series by Grinnell United Way to help tell the stories of our partner organizations and their operations in the Grinnell area.

Central Iowa Family Planning’s stated mission is, “to educate, promote, and provide access to sexual health services within area communities”. The organization does so by providing confidential and affordable family planning birth control, pregnancy testing, and STD testing. By decreasing unintended pregnancies, more children are born into stable homes. In turn this decreases dependence on state assistance.

This work ultimately affects the incidence of poverty in the Grinnell Community.
Two-thirds of Central Iowa Family Planning’s clients meet poverty guidelines, and no one is turned away based on their inability to pay for services. Central Iowa Family planning is the only major Title X agency providing service to those with limited means.

Supporting Central Iowa Family Planning

Please consider donating to Central Iowa Family Planning through Grinnell United Way at grinnellunitedway.org/give or by visiting them at . The organization’s funding structure is being affected by a dramatic reduction in insurance reimbursement, decreasing federal funding, increasing technology cost, and the cost of implementing a new electronic health record system.

Meet the Board – Bob Mann

The following is a Question and Answer with Bob Mann, Mayflower Community Executive Director and United Way Board Member.

1. What cause or issue inspired you to get involved with Grinnell United Way? What motivates your involvement now?

I first became involved as a young banker in Des Moines and took on more and more volunteer responsibility each year. I felt my payback was greater than my effort. Later, I worked a short time as a paid United Way executive in Boulder, Colorado. When I moved to Grinnell in 2006, I was invited on the board to replace my Mayflower Community predecessor, who had retired and moved away. I stay involved today because I want to assure Grinnell United Way’s success.

2. Which of the Grinnell United Way’s partner organizations are you most passionate about?

Frankly, none more than any other. I am committed to all because they serve populations in need.

Why? Although I have served on a couple of boards of Grinnell United Way funded agencies, none stands out more than any other in terms of being most critical. All are.

3. Looking ahead, what is one thing Grinnell United Way and its partners do that our community might not know about?

Critical underwriting of 15 not-for-profits’ operations via our annual grants.

4. Could you share a particular story or insight connected to your time with Grinnell United Way?

My general feeling about Grinnell United Way involvement is having the opportunity to serve with high quality individuals who are fellow Board members.
