Our Impact

Kindergarten ready. Graduation. Financial stability.

We are helping children, families, and individuals learn and grow, make smart decisions, and find stability in life by supporting programs that focus on early childhood development, positive youth development, and economic prosperity.

Learn more about our three areas of focus and the programs you help support.


Berkshire United Way has a new online system for managing its resource investment process annually.

Through e-CImpact, community partners will submit applications, and provide reports and accountability documents. Volunteers who participate on the Community Investment Review Teams and other funding review committees will also have electronic access to community partner and program information to assist in their decision making.

Community Partner Grant Application Process


Berkshire United Way staff and volunteers review applications to provide funding recommendations to the board for approval.

Current funding supports the general operation of our partner agencies. BUW grants are not restricted to specific programs, but can provide funding for organizations working within our three focus areas (early childhood development, positive youth development, and economic prosperity).
