Best of Breed United Way Community Impact Measurement

The United Way Worldwide Framework seeks to measure, evaluate, communicate, and readjust based upon the data – a clear mandate to focus on impact. In support of UWW, United Way funding organizations often require that funded organizations define program/project success, understand the components and process of success, prove program/project success, and make informed decisions about future programming and resource allocation. Apricot for Funders, Social Solutions’ United Way Software System designed specifically to support United Way’s Worldwide framework, provides the technology tools necessary to easily implement and manage the UW impact focus.

Take Control of the United Way Grant Application Process

Social Solutions understands how United Ways do their work, what drives their activities and what information they need to collect and report in order to increase capacity, support all constituents and stakeholders, and prove community impact – utilizing flexible, multiple or single online grant application and funded partner reporting tools. The user-friendly online grant application and allocations process empowers nonprofits to better qualify for more and larger grants/donations from all funders, including United Way, through proof of impact and mission success. Apricot for Funders has been chosen by over 100 United Way organizations to support and maximize their automated, web-based grants management procedures.

The Social Solutions on-line program was enthusiastically received by volunteers and human service professionals alike as it made the process more understandable and user friendly…
