Fundraising for nonprofit work requires maintaining the important activities we do, and achieving our future goals. An Application of Intent for Grant from United Way of the Lakeshore (UWL) can help us produce a successful request for funds from an individual donor, foundation, or government organization. This document acts as our formal, first request for information. Agencies can put their best foot forward with an Application of Intent for a United Way of the Lakeshore grant as the United Way pursues projects aimed at specifically addressing its ALICE Bold Goal to see that 10,000 more working families meet their basic needs by 2025.
