It's that time of year already, when the local organizations can apply for funding through the Weyburn Communithon.
The applications are open now, and will close on February 21st, at 4:00 p.m.
United Way Regina and the Allocation Committee of the Weyburn and Area Communithon will review all applications, with final decisions on 2022 Communithon recipient Community Agencies will be announced after March 30, 2022.
The local annual event, being held this year on October 28th, raises funds to support Weyburn community agencies and their programs.
Interested organizations in Weyburn and Area must complete a United Way Regina Funding Application package for consideration. Application forms are available by request by emailing Kristin Gushuliak at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order to be eligible, organizations need to have values that align with the United Way focus areas, and to use the funds in the Weyburn area specifically. They need to be incorporated under provincial or national jurisdiction, and be a registered charity in Canada.
Another key aspect of criteria is that the organization assigns a representative to the Communithon Committee.
Over 40 years the Communithon has raised over $4 million in funding has returned to our community. This is thanks to the hard work and dedication of the Committees, and our generous community.
