Grant Opportunities

Responding to the coronavirus/COVID-19, the United Way of Bemidji Area has established an Emergency Fund to support local nonprofits with unexpected expenses.

These funds will support access to food, emergency needs, and care to elderly/most vulnerable in our community. Agencies with unexpected expenses combined with fundraising shortfalls due to event cancellations will be included.



Applications will be accepted through Tuesday, April 7, 2020- deadline extended due to COVID-19. 

Each year, United Way of Bemidji Area accepts applications for funding from non-profit agencies, focusing on Education, Income, Health, or Basic Needs.

To verify your agency's eligibility to apply for grant consideration, please refer to the United Way Grant Guidelines and reference the United Way Grant Checklist.
