The Barry County United Way allocations applications are now available for the 2015-2016 funding year.

Last year, over 92,000 times residents of Barry County utilized services of United Way and it=s partner agencies. This is possible thanks to the many contributions that are made throughout the United Way campaign currently under way in our community. “This is a great way to give one gift and have it impact so many agencies and programs,” says Courtney Collison, Allocations Chairperson.
Agencies have the opportunity to apply for available funding through the allocations process that begins with filling out the application. Submissions are due before December 4, 2014 at 5pm and are available at the Barry County United Way office located at 231 S. Broadway, Hastings, MI 49058 or at www.bcunitedway.wpengine.com under the News tab at the top of the page.
