United Way accepting funding requests

Crawford County United Way is heading into its annual allocation season and is seeking applications from local nonprofit human services agencies and organizations for fund distribution throughout 2019-2020.

Last year, Crawford County United Way (CCUW) distributed funds to nine local human services agencies as well as presented the eighth LIVE UNITED Community Service Award scholarship, supported Project Graduation, Grayling High School RoboVikes, Kids Day in the Park, 2-1-1 Northeast Michigan Call Center, helped our neighbors with free discount prescription drug cards through our FamilyWize Community Service partnership, and helped employed low-income people get free eye examinations through VisionUSA.

The mission of the United Way movement is to increase the organized capacity of people to care for one another. Through a single community-wide campaign, United Way volunteers raise funds to support local agency service providers.

“Our relationship with everyone in this community has helped us help many people in a variety of ways for many years,” said Cheryll Ruley, CCUW Executive Director. “The generosity comes from every age group, every income level, and every neighborhood. We care about each other and it shows.”

The CCUW’s 2019-2020 funding base continues to need a boost. “Even with the increased fundraising efforts, we’re going to have a difficult time meeting agency funding requests. Support from businesses and individuals is needed more than ever,” Ruley explained.

Agencies applying for funding from Crawford County United Way must be a nonprofit charitable health and human service organization, fully describe their array of services, demonstrate how they meet local needs, and prove their cost-effectiveness and accountability to the community.

The board of directors makes the decisions about how the funds will be distributed. The board assesses our community’s human services needs, meets with service providers to discuss funding requirements when necessary, and approves the funding level for the various programs and agencies.

“Once again this year, we will not be mailing out application packets to prior recipients,” said Karen Hatley, President of CCUW. “Every penny is important, so we are asking, again, that all previous recipients and new requesters please contact us for an application to help save on printing and mailing costs.”

To receive an application, beginning March 1, 2019, email crawforduw@gmail.com and request an application, which will be sent via email. The deadline to submit applications is April 1, 2019. Call (989) 350-4462 with any questions.

Donations should be sent to CCUW, P.O. Box 171, Grayling, MI 49738 or via our secure PayPal Donate button at www.crawfordunitedway.org/give. All donations are tax deductible and stay in our community.

Join United Way for Celebrity Server Night at Spike’s

With our April 1 deadline just days away, Crawford County United Way is hoping one final fundraiser will boost its 2017 Allocation Fund to a more comfortable level.

Each year, Crawford County United Way (CCUW) invites local human services agencies to apply for funding to help reach their program goals in areas such as health, nutrition and education. Importantly, the process of reviewing these applications serves this community well by monitoring needs versus resources, and keeps CCUW in touch with changes and trends.

“The more we can raise, the more we can give,” said Executive Director Cheryll Ruley. “Our local agencies are hoping to receive funding comparable to 2016 levels and we hope everyone will help us make that happen.”

On Wednesday, March 22, 2017, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Spike’s Keg ‘O’ Nails in Grayling, CCUW will hold its 6th annual LAST BLAST Celebrity Server Night. All tips and 10% of all food and non-alcoholic beverage sales will be donated to CCUW by Spike’s.

Celebrities that evening will include Chad Patterson of Acting Up Theater Company, Grayling High School senior Seth Patterson, Hayley Strohpaul of Grayling Regional Chamber of Commerce, Rae Gosling of Grayling Main Street, Heather Tait of AuSable Canoe Marathon Committee, and Ashley Tobias of Tahiti Tans. Diners are encouraged to “hassle the help” and tip them accordingly for the cause.

CCUW is accepting tips online prior to, during, and after the event for those who may not be able to come for dinner. Go to www.crawfordunitedway.org/give and click on the Donate button at the top of the page. Be sure to indicate which server you are tipping. “We would love to see some light-hearted competition online between the servers,” said Ruley. “It would be great for our community.”

“Please come out. Bring the whole family and all of your friends,” urged Ruley, “and bring your appetites and smiles, too. We look forward to seeing you at Celebrity Server Night.”

It’s time to kick off the campaign, again!

Join us for our 5th Annual Campaign Kick-Off Spaghetti Dinner!spaghetti

One way or another, Crawford County United Way (CCUW) touches the lives of every person in our county. Whether it’s by helping provide a safe place for a child who is victim of crime, a safe night for high school graduates, putting a smile on the face of a hungry child or a senior citizen enjoying nutritious fresh produce, your neighbor receiving free medical care, a fun and educational opportunity at the library, museum or 4-H, disaster relief for victims of a fire, family and substance abuse counseling, or job training for special needs adults, your United Way supports them all. We all know someone who benefits, including our own family members.

September is Campaign Kick-Off Month. Part of that campaign involves asking local businesses to make a donation and to participate in our Payroll Deduction Program, encouraging their employees to donate just a dollar each week from their pay. If 1,000 employees who live in Crawford County made this pledge, your local United Way would raise $52,000, which would be an incredible blessing to the efforts of the local agencies we support. We really appreciate all the businesses and employees who have supported CCUW over many years. Be assured, your care and generosity make a difference.

In June, Crawford County United Way allocated $19,075 to 11 local agencies for their work that supports our stated mission to “engage our local agencies to provide the measurable tools to impact the lives of the most vulnerable in our community.” From the data provided, these agencies help directly nearly 10,000 people combined.

Funding sources are dwindling for many agencies and government programs have seen their budgets cut, as well. This is where Crawford County United Way can make a huge difference by raising more funds for distribution locally to help local people.

Agencies receiving funding in 2015 were AuSable Free Clinic, Munson Grayling Hospital Patient Needs Program, American Red Cross, Crawford County Community Christian Help Center, R.O.O.C., Inc., Crawford County Library Summer Reading Program, G.R.A.C.E. Center, Crawford County Commission on Aging, Crawford County Historical Museum, Crawford County MSU-Extension/4-H, and Northern Michigan Children’s Assessment Center.

We also support Project Graduation, Kids’ Day in the Park, Neighborhood Connections, and provide a local scholarship for community service. We work in partnership with VisionUSA to arrange free eye examinations for low-income workers, the FamilyWize Discount Prescription Drug Program to help with the cost of medicine, and support resource call center 2-1-1 Northeast Michigan.

Please sign up for payroll deduction; make a monthly donation, or an annual donation. Participate in our fundraisers. Help us continue to help each other in our community. What’s raised here, stays here!

On September 23, our Campaign Kick-Off Spaghetti Dinner will be held at Fox Run Country Club from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. The meal will be buffet-style, with fun and family-friendly entertainment by Chad Patterson and Acting Up Theater Company, and a silent auction. We are asking for a donation at the door of $10 per person/$8 with three canned goods or $25 per family of four/$20 with three canned goods. All canned goods collected will be given to the Christian Help Center for distribution. Please join us!

For more information about our 2015-16 Campaign, our fundraisers, or to donate a silent auction item for the Kick-Off dinner, please call (989) 350-4462 or email crawforduw@gmail.com. Send donations to: CCUW, P.O. Box 171, Grayling, MI 49738.
