Partner Benefits

  • Funding:  The United Way of Southeast Alaska allows donors to designate gifts directly to our partner agencies.  In addition, we encourage undesignated gifts that fund our Community Impact Grants program.  In 2012, we awarded $27,000 in grants to support vital programs and services in Southeast Alaska.
  • Enhanced Credibility:  United Way of Southeast Alaska donors know that our partner agencies have been reviewed by a volunteer team of CPAs and financial experts and meet our standards of excellence.  At United Way of Southeast Alaska, we stand behind our partner agencies.
  • Publicity & Awareness:  United Way of Southeast Alaska partner agencies are included in campaign materials and publicity that helps build community awareness of each agency’s role and impact in our communities.
  • Networking:  United Way of Southeast Alaska partner agencies participate in the Nonprofit Leadership Council (in Juneau or by teleconference in the region), a group of agency leaders that meets regularly to work on collaborative projects, share information, obtain professional development and provide mutual support.  In addition, we convene groups dedicated to community initiatives in the areas of health, income stability, and education as well as provide information by email that may be of interest such as grants, trends or new regulations.
  • Resource Development:  United Way of Southeast Alaska partner agencies benefit from our community-building activities such as: community research, special grants, Day of Caring events, volunteer development and referrals, collaborative grant writing, and other partnership activities that leverage resources and results.
