United Good Neighbors’ mission is “To mobilize the caring power of donors, volunteers, organizations and the community to improve the lives of people in need.” We are the primary community led umbrella funding resource for local nonprofits who are providing a safety net of services and programs that meet the needs of our seniors, youth, families and neighbors.
Our greatest single vehicle for accomplishing our mission is the UGN grant application and allocation process. Every year, UGN Annual Campaign secures donations from businesses and community members all over Jefferson County which are allocated to health and human service organizations as the result of the UGN grant application and allocations process.
Non-Profits providing services in our County may apply for grant funding from UGN to help them fund programs meet the health, safety, and human service needs in our county. Any 501(c)3 health and human service program may become certified and apply for UGN funding.
