Interested in Becoming a Funded Partner?

Any agency/organization interested in receiving funding from United Way of Greater Nashville in 2023 must complete the Agency Eligibility Review (AER) Process and pass review.

The AER process includes submission of the AER Checklist, a review by UWGN staff, and review by AER Committee Members. If a committee member has a question or concern, they will reach out to the organization contact from the AER Checklist. If an organization passes review, they will be sent login information for eCImpact, the online portal where our Community Impact Funding application is posted. An organization does not have to apply for Community Impact Funding, but completion of the AER Process gives them that opportunity.

The AER Checklist is due no later than October 24 if you wish to apply for Community Impact Funding. Any organization wishing to receive funding from United Way in 2023 will be required to complete the AER process, annually.

Any questions, comments or concerns can be directed to Rebecca Carter .
