LUDINGTON — United Way of Mason County is accepting requests for proposals for the 2022/2023 funding cycle (April 1, 2022 to March 31, 2023) from local non-profit organizations that are focusing on helping children to achieve their potential, working with individuals and families to be financially stable, and improving people’s health. The request for proposal document can be accessed by going to www.masoncountyuw.org, via the United Way of Mason County Facebook page or by calling the United Way of Mason County office at 231-843-8593. 

“Local volunteers will review each of the request for proposals submitted and recommend to the United Way of Mason County Board of Directors how the dollars should be awarded,” said Lynne Russell, executive director of United Way of Mason County.
When volunteers review the proposals, they are looking for the quality of services being delivered, achievement of identified outcomes, formation of partnerships with similar type organizations and fiscal responsibility.  

Last year, eight local programs were awarded funding.  In addition, United Way of Mason County helps to fund and manage Mason County Family Link in each of the three county public school districts and Lakeshore Employer Resource Network of Mason County.

The dollars raised from United Way of Mason County’s fundraising campaign are the dollars used for awarding funds.

“If you haven’t had a chance to make a donation through United Way of Mason County’s fundraising campaign, it’s not too late.  When you give through the United Way of Mason County, 98 cents of every dollar stays right here in our community,” Russell said.

For more information about submitting a Request for Proposal or making a contribution to the United Way of Mason County Fundraising Campaign, please call 231-843-8593 or visit www.masoncountyuw.org.
