Request for 2023 Funding Interest


The Konza United Way Community Impact Committee would like to extend a request for 2023 Funding Interest.  Letters of Intent are due on Friday, January 28, 2022 at 5:00 pm. 


Letters and supporting documentation can be e-mailed to, or mailed to PO Box 922, Manhattan KS 66505 or delivered in person at our office, 555 Poyntz Avenue, Suite 269.


All letters of intent must outline each program’s services and needs for funding in 350 words or less. Programming must meet a community need in the strategic anchors of Konza United Way's mission to serve the community:  EDUCATION, FINANCIAL STABILITY, OR HEALTH.  All letters must be accompanied by the nonprofit organization’s most recent audit or review; compilations will not be accepted.


Upon review and confirmation of eligibility by the KUW Community Impact Committee, you will receive an invitation and link to submit your full grant application for the funding year 2023. 


Thank you for the important work you are doing to advance education, health, and financial stability in our region.


Warmest Regards,
