BASIC NEEDS INITIATIVES: FOOD. SHELTER. HEALTH. TRANSPORTATION. OUR BASIC NEEDS WORK PROVIDES SUPPORT TO OUR MOST VULNERABLE NEIGHBORS AND LIFE-SAVING ASSISTANCE TO THOSE IN CRISIS SITUATIONS - HELPING THOSE IN IMMEDIATE NEED SURVIVE TODAY SO THEY CAN THRIVE TOMORROW. UWCI ACCOMPLISHES THIS THROUGH A NUMBER OF PROGRAMS AND ACTIVITIES: IN 2019/20 UWCI GRANTED $5M TO 57 ORGANIZATIONS THROUGH OUR BASIC NEEDS IMPACT FUND.

ACCREDITED COMMUNITY BASED ORGANIZATION (CBO) SUPPORTS: UNITED WAY OF CENTRAL INDIANA (UWCI) ADDRESSES CENTRAL INDIANA'S MOST PRESSING NEEDS IN EDUCATION, FINANCIAL STABILITY, HEALTH, AND BASIC NEEDS. MUCH OF THIS WORK WAS ACCOMPLISHED IN FISCAL YEAR 2019/20 THROUGH GENERAL SUPPORT OF 80-90 ACCREDITED CBOS ACROSS THE HUMAN SERVICES SPECTRUM. THESE CBOS ARE PART OF A RIGOROUS EVALUATION PROCESS THAT ASSESSES ORGANIZATIONAL GOVERNANCE; LEADERSHIP; DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION; FINANCIAL STABILITY; STRATEGIC PLANNING; COMMUNITY RESPONSIVENESS; SUSTAINABILITY & SCALABILITY; AND ABILITY TO MARKET AND ENGAGE FUNDERS TO SUPPORT THEIR WORK . THIS YEAR REPRESENTED A "STEP-DOWN" YEAR FOR UWCI'S TRADITIONAL UNRESTRICTED SUPPORT OF THESE CBOS AS WE FINALIZE THE TRANSITION TO FULLY COMPETITIVE GRANTMAKING THROUGH OUR IMPACT INITIATIVES: BASIC NEEDS, FAMILY OPPORTUNITY AND SOCIAL INNOVATION - FURTHER OUTLINED IN OTHER PROGRAM SERVICE ACCOMPLISHMENTS IN THIS SECTION. THE $8M "STEP-DOWN" GRANTS IN 2019/20 WERE INTENDED TO ALLOW FOR A SMOOTHER TRANSITION TO THE NEW MODEL. UWCI ALSO SUPPORTS THESE AGENCIES' GENERAL OPERATIONS THROUGH DONOR DESIGNATED AND OTHER DIRECTED GIFTS ($2.5M); CAPITAL PROJECTS, TECHNOLOGY AND FACILITIES MAINTENANCE GRANTS ($1.6M); AND EVALUATION, CAPACITY BUILDING, CONTINGENCY, STAFF SUPPORT, AND OTHER ACTIVITIES.

FAMILY OPPORTUNITY INITIATIVES: OUR FAMILY OPPORTUNITY WORK SUPPORTS INTEGRATED PROGRAMS THAT IMPROVE THE EDUCATION, FINANCIAL STABILITY AND OVERALL HEALTH OF THE WHOLE FAMILY. BY INTENTIONALLY WORKING WITH PARENTS, CAREGIVERS AND CHILDREN TOGETHER, WE CREATE PATHWAYS FOR SUCCESS AND GIVE FAMILIES THE TOOLS NEEDED TO SECURE LONG-TERM STABILITY AND A BRIGHTER FUTURE. IN 2019/20 UWCI AWARDED $3.6M IN GRANTS TO 17 CBOS THROUGH OUR FAMILY OPPORTUNITY IMPACT FUND. THESE GRANTS SERVED 1,523 FAMILIES INCLUDING 2,038 CHILDREN THROUGH INTENTIONAL 2GEN WORK. 2GEN PROGRAMS DON'T STOP WITH JUST INCOME, EMPLOYMENT AND BUDGETING SUPPORTS. THEY ARE MEANT TO WRAP AROUND AN ENTIRE FAMILY AND IMPROVE HEALTH AND WELL-BEING. UWCI IS IN THE THIRD AND FINAL YEAR OF OUR GREAT FAMILIES 2020 PROGRAM. FUNDED BY THE CORPORATION FOR NATIONAL AND COMMUNITY SERVICE ($7M) PLUS A $1:$1 MATCH FUNDED BY UWCI AND OTHER PRIVATE FUNDERS, THIS GRANT WAS OUR ENTRY INTO THE 2GEN WORK WITH 8 PARTNERS, PROVIDING US WITH LEARNINGS AND A FRAMEWORK FOR OUR BROADER FAMILY OPPORTUNITY STRATEGIES. THE 2019/20 SCHOOL YEAR ALSO MARKED THE FIFTH AND FINAL YEAR OF THE INDIANAPOLIS PRESCHOOL SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM, PROVIDING 1,727 CHILDREN WITH PREK SCHOLARSHIPS TO HELP THEM ENTER KINDERGARTEN READY TO LEARN. UWCI ALSO SOLIDIFIED FUTURE FUNDING BY BUILDING OUR BASE NUMBER FOR THOSE RECEIVING STATE-FUNDED ON MY WAY PREK SCHOLARSHIPS. THROUGHOUT THIS PROGRAM, UWCI HAS WORKED WITH A NUMBER OF PARTNERS TO NOT ONLY PROVIDE SCHOLARSHIPS, BUT TO BUILD CAPACITY AND STRENGTHEN THE PROVIDER NETWORK THROUGH CAPITAL PROJECTS, COACHING, CLASSROOM SUPPLIES AND EQUIPMENT, ETC. OTHER FAMILY OPPORTUNITY WORK INCLUDED THE INDY FREE TAX PREP PROGRAM, WHICH FILED 3,539 RETURNS FOR LOW-INCOME FAMILIES, BRINGING $3.9M IN FEDERAL REFUNDS AND $1.3M IN FEDERAL EARNED INCOME TAX CREDITS BACK TO THESE HOUSEHOLDS; AND OUR READUP PROGRAM, WHICH ENLISTS OVER 1,000 VOLUNTEER MENTORS TO SUPPORT HUNDREDS OF EARLY SCHOOL-AGED KIDS GET ON TRACK AND STAY ON TRACK WITH THEIR EXPECTED READING LEVELS. AS PART OF OUR OVERALL FAMILY OPPORTUNITY INITIATIVES, UWCI ALSO PROVIDED $1.5M TO 12 CENTERS FOR WORKING FAMILIES (CWF). BUILT ON AN EVIDENCE-BASED MODEL DEVELOPED BY THE ANNIE E. CASEY FOUNDATION THE CWF NETWORK IS DESIGNED TO PROVIDE FAMILIES WITH THE FINANCIAL CAPABILITIES, STRATEGIES AND TOOLS NEEDED TO PUT THEM ON THE PATH TO FINANCIAL STABILITY.


OTHER PROGRAM SERVICES INCLUDE A NUMBER OF PROGRAMS DESIGNED TO ENSURE WE ARE MAKING DATA-DRIVEN COMMUNITY IMPACT DECISIONS, IMPLEMENTING THEM WITH FIDELITY, AND LEVERAGING ALL FINANCIAL AND HUMAN RESOURCES IN OUR COMMUNITY. THESE INCLUDE: COMMUNITY NEEDS/HUMAN SERVICES RESEARCH; PUBLIC POLICY ADVOCACY; VOLUNTEER TRAINING, DEVELOPMENT, AND DEPLOYMENT; NONPROFIT LEADERSHIP EDUCATION AND TRAINING; AND SERVING AS A CONVENER FOR COMMUNITY LEADERS AND FUNDERS TO ALIGN RESOURCES AROUND SHARED COMMUNITY GOALS. THIS YEAR, UWCI MADE SIGNIFICANT INVESTMENTS IN THE STRATEGIES AND INFRASTRUCTURE TO SUPPORT OUR AND OUR PARTNER CBO'S ABILITY TO REPORT RESULTS, PROVIDING COMPREHENSIVE DATA ACROSS ALL OF OUR IMPACT INITIATIVES, AND WORKING WITH A LOCAL CONSULTING FIRM TO IMPLEMENT A SOPHISTICATED SYSTEM THAT WILL ALLOW US TO TRACK OUR FAMILY OPPORTUNITY FUND FAMILIES OVER TIME TO SEE WHAT WORKS! WE ALSO DEPLOYED $750K TO 14 ORGANIZATIONS THROUGH OUR FIRST EVER SOCIAL INNOVATION IMPACT FUND GRANTS. MANY OF THESE ORGANIZATIONS ARE NEW PARTNERS TO UWCI AND THOSE GRASSROOTS ORGANIZATIONS WORKING CLOSEST WITH THOSE IN NEED IN OUR COMMUNITY. THIS FUND SEEKS TO DISRUPT THE WAYS WE CURRENTLY ADDRESS SOME OF OUR COMMUNITY'S OLDEST PROBLEMS BY HARNESSING CENTRAL INDIANA'S RESILIENT AND ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT, CREATING SPACE FOR EXCHANGING AND INCUBATING NEW IDEAS, IMPROVING TECHNOLOGY, AND EXPANDING SUCCESSFUL SMALL-SCALE PROGRAMS. OUR INVESTMENTS THROUGH THIS FUND SERVED 312 FAMILIES INCLUDING 1,284 CHILDREN.
