United Way of Mason County accepting proposals

LUDINGTON — United Way of Mason County is accepting requests for proposals (RFPs) for the 2024-2025 funding cycle (April 1, 2024 to March 31, 2025) from local non-profit charitable organizations that are focusing on helping children to achieve their potential and/or working with individuals and families to be financially stable and improving health.  The RFP can be accessed by going to www.masoncountyuw.org or by calling the United Way of Mason County office at 231-843-8593. RFPs must be submitted by 5 p.m. on Monday, February 5, 2024.

“Our Community Investment Committee that is made up of local volunteers will review each of the requests 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, Russell said.  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. We know that every dollar counts right now and it’s important to remember that 98 cents of every dollar donated stays right here in our community,” Russell said.
