ANN ARBOR – United Way of Washtenaw County has announced it is accepting applications for its new Opportunity Fund for local nonprofit programs.

The $200,000 fund will support organizations whose work serves residents with low incomes, people of color and systemically and/or historically marginalized people.

UWWC prioritizes investing in safety-net services focused on education, health and financial stability with a mission to create a reality in which one’s zip code no longer determines their opportunity in life.

For more information, contact UWWC’s Community Impact Manager Jaime Hoffman at jhoffman@uwwashtenaw.org.
