United Way for Southeastern Michigan is powered by partners.

United Way for Southeastern Michigan is powered by partners. We regularly provide funding to organizations that do great work, from community nonprofits to places of worship, neighborhood organizations, sororities, fraternities and more. Learn more about the work we’ve helped move forward on our success stories page.

We have hundreds of partnerships, and they’re more than a pass-through. We work side-by-side with partners to improve and expand programming and provide resources and expertise. By working together, we Light The Way to a better future in Southeastern Michigan.

We regularly post requests for proposals and invite organizations to apply where they see fit. Specific details vary on a case-by-case basis. Visit our active opportunities page to learn more. If you’re not sure where your idea fits in or if you want more information, contact AgencyRelations@UnitedWaySEM.org.
