To help make a difference in the lives of our neighbors, United Way of Greater Yankton is offering Venture Grants to 501c(3) non-profit organizations. Venture Grants offer human service agencies an opportunity to seek funds for immediate and creative response to the most pressing human needs in our community. Venture Grants are time-limited. In most cases, where a Venture Grant is awarded, no commitment for continued support is made. These grants are available for innovative projects conducted by member and non-member agencies in the community.
There are two types of Venture Grants available:
Seed Money Grants – intended to provide short-term support for start-up or untried programs or research and/or development.
Delivery Enhancement Grants – intended to enhance the capacity of existing agencies or delivery systems. This grant can help foster improved coordination and help agencies develop administrative mechanisms.
Venture Grants can be submitted at any time and are generally funded for a period not to exceed 12 months. At the completion of the project, a final Achievement Report is to be submitted to the United Way Office at 610 W 23rd Street , Suite 11, Yankton, SD 57078
