Community-wide and place matters

2022-2023 BUILDING A THRIVING COMMUNITY-

EDUCATION REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS (RFP) FRAMEWORK FOR COMMUNITY-WIDE AND Place Matters funding

United Way Forsyth County seeks to fund proposals that will drive impact and directly address our strategic goal: Increase 3rd grade reading proficiency from 52% to 90% by closing the educational equity gap by 2025, resulting in a 90% graduation rate.

Reading is a critical predictor of high school success or failure. This is because children are learning to read until fourth grade; after that, they are reading to learn. Forsyth County continues to have significant gaps in educational achievement by race and income along all age groups of child development. Closing these gaps will be key to ensuring the community’s future workforce can compete on a national scale and thrive. United Way Forsyth County’s educational priorities directly support those of Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools.

Funding is open to all non-profit agencies in Forsyth County.
