2019 Request for Proposals – Falk Facilities and Technology Improvement Fund
Grant for Nonprofit Capital Improvement
The Falk Facility and Technology Fund Grant assists eligible nonprofits to complete capital or technology purchases or improvements, enabling the agency to continue providing services to its clients and avoid a broader solicitation for capital funds for this particular need. The purchase or improvements must meet the guidelines below, may not exceed $15,000, and the agency must demonstrate that the need did not occur because of the deferral of normal maintenance to equipment or facility.
United Way welcomes requests in the following areas.
- Building renovation & repair
- Vehicle purchases
- Equipment purchases
- Technology improvement
- Safety & Security purchases or installation
- Furniture & Appliance purchases
The deadline for proposals is Thursday, August 1, 2019 at 5:00 PM, EST.
Interested organizations should review the information below before developing a proposal:
The applying agency must be a nonprofit with IRS 501(c) (3) tax-exempt status that is located and providing a health or human service in Allegheny County. (NOTE: arts, cultural, religious, recreational, political programs, government agencies and institutions providing formal education are not eligible.)
The agency must be a United Way partner agency (funded through an RFP) or a recent recipient of unrestricted funds through a grant from The Pittsburgh Foundation.
