United Way of Lancaster County’s Level Up & Launch Grant Program

I attended the presentation of United Way of Lancaster County’s “Level Up & Launch” Grant Initiative this past week. I assisted in creating the visual marketing materials for the grant. The biggest task for this project was communicating the grant levels in a clear manner. Grantees have the opportunity get additional funds beyond their initial grant if they can fundraise or utilize their own revenue to “match” the first grant. In doing so, they will receive a second grant from The United Way. Most grants require an organization to equally match the amount of the grant being given. This grant does not require a match, but rewards an organization if they are able to do so, by doubling funds and providing a second grant.

I met with Kevin Ressler and Maddie Seiler; we had multiple brainstorming sessions. There were prints made for table-tops, a poster, and an email signature was created to spread the word about the funding opportunity.
