Range Resources establishes the $50,000 Veterans United Fund Creating a new United Way of Washington County grant funding opportunity for nonprofits

The United Way of Washington County (UWWC) recognize Range Resources for its commitment to our community veterans and for taking the lead to establish the new Veterans United Fund with a $50,000 donation, which was made possible through funds raised through Range’s annual charity events. The UWWC is excited to announce that $50,000 will be available for area veterans’ programs or projects of nonprofits. Programs/projects must actively serve the U.S. military veteran community within UWWC’s 38-zip code service area. 

“The team at Range is excited to support local veterans. Our veterans have served our country, and it is nice to be able to support them in return,” said Range Resources’ Vice President Tony Gaudlip and U. S. Army veteran. “We are thankful for the support of our business partners who helped make this possible through participation of our fundraising efforts.”

The inaugural grant year of the Veterans United Fund established by the initial $50,000 donation from Range Resources, will welcome nonprofits to submit grant applications and in turn, the fund will distribute one-year grants during the current fiscal year ending June 30, 2023. Nonprofits applying for funding must be registered as a 501(c)3 in good standing at state and federal levels. Only one grant request per nonprofit will be accepted, with a $15,000 maximum grant request for the one-year period. If a nonprofit is currently receiving Community Impact Funding for a program that includes serving veterans, then it must demonstrate that only veterans will be served by the Veterans United Fund.

P. Ann Hrabik, MBA, CFRE, Executive Director of the United Way of Washington County expressed, “We are grateful for the long-standing partnership that UWWC has with Range Resources and are excited to be able to offer funding to assist nonprofits who serve our courageous veterans in our community.” 

Grant applications will be accepted Monday, April 3, 2023, through Friday, April 21, 2023 by 3 p.m. and must be submitted online at www.unitedwaywashco.org/veterans . UWWC will announce award decisions on Wednesday, May 31, 2023.
