The Nonprofit Insider for May 11, 2017
NWPA 2-1-1 to Launch May 23: Be Prepared!

2-1-1 Challenge: Any Erie County nonprofit who has reviewed and updated their database information by May 23 will be entered into a drawing to win one $1,000 grant from United Way of Erie County. Learn more.

United Way's 2-1-1 information and referral service launches in Erie, Warren and Venango Counties on Tuesday, May 23. All nonprofits are urged to review and update their information.  Many nonprofits rely on referrals and the 2-1-1 system can only make quality referrals depending on what is in the database. View the tutorial.

NEED HELP? United Way is hosting a series of HELP sessions for agency representatives needing assistance with securing a login. Schedule a time for help to gear up for 2-1-1! Sign up.
