2014 Call for Proposals

Phase II of the 2014 Call for Proposals for the 2014-15 funding cycle is now closed.

United Way Ottawa is committed to making change happen in our community by investing resources where they are needed the most and where they will have the greatest impact.  Non-profit organizations that submitted a Request for Investment under Phase I and were selected to advance to Phase II of this process had till March 25, 2014 to submit a full proposal.  

Our decisions this year about investments in front-line programs and services will reflect our focus on achieving priority goals for our community in our three Focus Areas.  As with our previous Calls for Proposals, the total requests for funding we received this year is more than double the amount of  funding we anticipate will be available for investment.  To make these difficult decisions, we put in place a rigorous, fair and transparent process to ensure that each Request for Investment was given full consideration and assessed according to consistent criteria.

Our volunteers were impressed with both the number and quality of the Requests for Investment we received during Phase I of our third Call for Proposals.  We received a total of 157 requests this year. The assessments and funding recommendations were completed by committed volunteers with an in-depth understanding of the community and of each priority goal sector.  Assessments for Phase II will be done in March and April.
