United Way of Rutherford & Cannon Counties (UWRCC) is awarding over $1 million in grants to 39 agency programs aligned with Bold Goals 2030 and demonstrating measurable progress toward these community goals.
In 2020, UWRCC adopted “Bold Goals 2030,” a strategic vision for making our community a stronger place for everyone who calls it home. Developed by key leaders, experts and community members, Bold Goals 2030 outlines key strategies that will help transform our community by addressing our most pressing needs.
"We are excited to partner with 39 programs in our community this year. These programs have been awarded a grant through a competitive process through our Community Impact Committee who feel that these programs will help us move the needle in our Bold Goals 2030 work. We look forward to continuing to make an impact in priority areas for our community," shares Kristen Swann, Vice President of Collective Impact and Strategic Initiatives for United Way of Rutherford & Cannon Counties.
Thanks to Redstone Federal Credit Union, United Way of Rutherford and Cannon Counties will have the tools needed to track the meaningful and measurable improvements being made in the community. Redstone Federal Credit Union has provided a $22,500 grant over five years to provide the Clear Impact software to our community. This software will help measure shared outcomes among United Way’s grant recipients as well as track community-level data, while ensuring programs are being delivered in an equitable way.
“Redstone is excited to partner with the United Way in its efforts to support community organizations as they serve our neighbors and friends,’’ said Mike Panesi, Redstone’s Tennessee Vice President.
