United Way of Greater Yankton Community Impact Grants are how we invest local dollars to address specific community centered issues. Funding decisions are made through an annual competitive application process.  Our Community Impact Grants are invested in high performing 501c(3) human service organizations that provide programs and services aligned with our three strategic priority areas of Education, Financial Stability, and Health. Awardees help to improve community conditions across the greater Yankton area. Grant applications for Community Impact Funding in 2020 will be made available in March 2019.

Venture Grants

To help make a difference in the lives of our neighbors, United Way of Greater Yankton is offering Venture Grants to 501c(3) non-profit organizations. Venture Grants offer human service agencies an opportunity to seek funds for immediate and creative response to the most pressing human needs in our community. Venture Grants are time-limited. In most cases, where a Venture Grant is awarded, no commitment for continued support is made. These grants are available for innovative projects conducted by member and non-member agencies in the community. 

There are two types of Venture Grants available: 

Seed Money Grants – intended to provide short-term support for start-up or untried programs or research and/or development.

Delivery Enhancement Grants – intended to enhance the capacity of existing agencies or delivery systems. This grant can help foster improved coordination and help agencies develop administrative mechanisms.

Venture Grants can be submitted at any time and are generally funded for a period not to exceed 12 months. At the completion of the project, a final Achievement Report is to be submitted to the United Way Office at 610 W 23rd Street , Suite 11, Yankton, SD 57078

Questions may be directed to Lauren Hanson, Executive Director at (605) 665- 6766 or email
