Each community is unique and has its own needs and assets. That's why United Way of Rock River Valley maintains separate fundraising and grant distribution efforts for Ogle County. Funds raised in Ogle County are distributed to programs and services supporting Ogle County residents. An Ogle County Advisory Board helps address community needs and make funding recommendations. The Ogle County Advisory Board chair also serves a position on the United Way of Rock River Valley Board.


We are now accepting applications for our Ogle County grants program.

If you are a nonprofit agency serving residents of Ogle County, you may be eligible to submit a grant application for funding. Applications open December 12, 2018 and close January 23, 2019.
