                        United Way Glenelg - Guidelines For Community Fund 2011
 UNITED WAY GLENELG
BACKGROUND
United Way Glenelg is one of over 3,300 United Way organisations around the world and has
served this region for the past 11 years. United Way Glenelg is community based, and our work is
carried out at community level. We are united by one essential, universal idea - which members of a
community can come together voluntarily, pool their resources and knowledge, and work together to
address their most compelling human needs.

Our funds to support community projects come from our Workplace Giving Program of which 100% is
returned. We have no religious or political affiliations and are accredited by the ATO as a Deductible
Gift Recipient organisation

United Way Glenelg aims to improve the lives of those people in need in this region. We all benefit
when we can create opportunities for a better life for all. We all benefit when a child does well in
school, when families are financially stable and when people have good health. When we support one
person, we influence the condition of everyone and benefits ripple out to the community as a whole.


 WHO CAN APPLY

COMMUNITY FUND
Organisations who are working in areas that increase or generate independent living, social well
being, promote and foster the development of preventative services, provide solutions for unmet
needs or engender an increased community spirit.
