As before, United Way is committing up to $500,000 to Level Up & Launch. Applicants should target one of United Way’s core focus areas: education, economic mobility and health.

Successful applicants will initially receive grants of $15,000 to $50,000, with the initial disbursement totaling $250,000. Grant recipients are then encouraged to raise additional funds on their own. Funds raised through Nov. 8 will be matched dollar-for-dollar, up to the amount of the initial grant.
