The Community Impact Fund was set up to help provide seed money to partner agencies in order to address a gap in service or cover an unmet critical need. This fund is similar to an incubator fund in which United Way of Northern Ozaukee helps launch a new program, allowing an agency to establish a proven track record and helps position our partners to leverage their UWNO relationship and successfully apply for future matching funds from other revenue streams. The fund's revenue is raised through the annual Ozaukee Autumn Open, Scrambling for Funds golf outing.
2019 Community Impact Grant
In 2019, United Way of Northern Ozaukee and its partners raised over $20,000 to fund a grant to Ozaukee Family Services’ School-Based Mental Health Counseling. United Way of Northern Ozaukee’s grant will improve access to mental health services for Ozaukee County’s at-risk students whose families don’t have the funds or resources to access consistent, coordinated and affordable counseling services.
