Community Funding & Grants

Each year we open our Community Impact Funding process to charitable organizations across Northumberland County. Our application is designed to address core issues in each of our Focus Areas (poverty, kids and community) while creating a lasting impact for real people in our communities. Funding will be provided for a minimum of $10,000 and up.

It is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure that they meet the eligibility criteria, that they understand the funding application, and have the proper documentation in place. However, that being said, we are here to help! We are available to support applicants and make sure that that each applicant puts their best foot forward!

For both new and returning applications, please make sure that you’ve read through the application completely. If you have questions or want to get some insight on this process, please contact to discuss your application.

The application period has officially closed. Thank you to all those who submitted their applications.


  • Grants will be provided for a minimum of $1,000 and a maximum of $5,000
  • Projects must be directly related to the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Projects must be time-limited and have defined goals and objectives
  • The applicant must be a registered charitable organization, with a CRA number
  • The applicant must be providing services to residents of Northumberland County

Through our fundraising campaigns, United Way Northumberland raises money to invest in our community each year. One way of investing these dollars is through one-time grants, which are available to any registered charitable organization in Northumberland County that meets the priorities under our three focus areas: kids, community, and poverty.

Grants are currently closed.
