Women United announces grant application process

Women United, an affinity group of the Souris Valley United Way, announces grant application opportunities made possible from the third annual Little Black Dress Campaign.

In February, Women United members and friends held an awareness campaign by wearing a black dress for five consecutive days to raise funds in support of women and families with limited resources. The event raised over $13,000.

Women United seeks to enhance the efforts of organizations that contribute to the quality of life for women and families in our community. The group is requesting impactful projects that closely align with its mission and are within the Souris Valley United Way service area.

A grant application process is now open for local programs and organizations to apply for funding. Visit www.svunitedway.com/little-black-dress-campaign for more information and to view the application.

“Thank you to all the women in our community and members for making this campaign another great success. I am excited to see how the funds will go to support and enrich our community this year,” said Kelly Loos, Women United president.

Dates for the 2019 campaign will be announced later this year.
