9. United Way of the Inland Valleys (UWIV)– Funding Request: $100,000.00

Summary of project: This proposal is for a Fund Development Collaborative – UWIL, United Way of the Desert (UWD), Academy Go and AFP Inland Empire. It will provide Fund Development, Grant Writing, and Budget/Finance services. This work will serve up to 200 nonprofits across all 5 Supervisorial Districts in Riverside County.

The Fund Development Collaborative will identify, select, and invite nonprofits for participation in 1-on-1 coaching and/or grant training. Nonprofits will be identified from the pool of 800 unfunded applicants to the Inland SoCal COVID-19 Relief Fund, as well as from UWD’s expertise and network and an online interest portal. Participating nonprofits have passion and regionally needed services, but do not have the necessary experience and business acumen to operate/fundraise successfully in the COVID-19 era. As a result, they submitted ineffective and un-fundable applications that demonstrated high need for capacity building and technical assistance in finance, fundraising, and grant writing.

Up to 200 nonprofits will receive individualized coaching for Finance and Fundraising. The standard service will provide 5 hours of consulting to each organization. Every nonprofit is different. Some will require more, or less, time to be successful. Unused hours will be re-allocated as available to participating nonprofits with additional needs. Beyond the grant period and scope, nonprofits interested in retaining coaching will be eligible for billable consulting. During the grant period, every participating nonprofit will have a minimum of 5 hours made available free-of-charge under this proposal for a total of 1,000 coaching hours.   Providers:

  1. UWIL is the lead agency providing grant oversight/reporting, and Collaborative administration. Provision of one-on-one coaching in finance and fundraising. Proposal review.
  2. UWD providing screening and selection of nonprofits to participate and proposal review.
  3. Academy Go providing The Grant writing Academy and Grant Research trainings
  4. AFP Inland Empire Chapter providing a pool of professional fundraisers who can offer additional capacity building services to meet the service quota for coaching.
