United Way of Skagit County is committed to removing barriers and increasing accessibility and equity in programming for our most vulnerable and underserved populations. In an effort to align with our bold goal, our grant application includes information related to client, board, and staff demographics including:
- Staff and board representation of the population served;
- Low income families;
- Families who live in school districts with lower kindergarten readiness according to WAKids data scores including Burlington Edison, LaConner, Mount Vernon, or Sedro Woolley School Districts; and,
- Programs that focus on math and literacy skills.
You will have an opportunity to share the progress your organization is making in terms of equity and accessibility so that United Way might learn and gather information for future funding cycles.
