BATH — United Way of Mid Coast Maine is seeking new funding partnerships with local nonprofit organizations that work to improve people’s lives through education, health and financial stability.

“United Way is committed to positively improving local people’s lives and strengthening the quality of life throughout all of our communities,” said Dennis Unger, United Way’s 2013-14 chairman, in a press release. “This commitment is realized through building and sustaining partnerships with a wide array of local agencies. We welcome new and current partners with highly effective, well managed programs to inquire about our funding process.”

The groups can apply for the United Way funding cycle of July 1, 2015, through June 30, 2017, in two steps. New agencies first have to apply to become eligible for funding by noon on Monday, Dec. 1.

Once found to be funding-eligible, the agency can apply in February 2015 to one of United Way’s four community solutions councils for funding for specific programs.

Organizations interested in applying can reach John Washburn, director of finance and administration, by writing United Way of Mid Coast Maine, 34 Wing Farm Parkway, Bath, ME 04530, or calling 443-9752, to obtain a copy of the partnership agreement and eligibility application.
