If your non-profit program helps families and individuals increase their financial security, consider applying for a grant from our Community Impact Fund. Our funded programs are more than just grant recipients. We expect participation throughout the year. Joining our network means living United. We’re in this together.

January: RFQ process opens
February: RFQ applications due

We want long-term solutions for our community. But emergencies happen. We’re grateful for the $100,000+ in federal funds Whatcom County receives annually to supplement local emergency food and shelter programs. We serve as the fiscal agent for these funds and work with local government and non-profit organizations to determine allocations to local programs.
Grant applications are accepted and reviewed annually.
