Thank you for your interest in partnering with United Way of Escambia County!

If your organization is a 501c3 and would like to be considered for funding through United Way of Escambia County’s Community Investment (CI) process, you must first become a certified partner of UWEC.  

To get started, click the following link to create your e-CImpact account and enter in basic agency information:

 Once you have an account, click on the Certification option to the left-hand side on the home screen, and complete the following forms:

  1. Certification Attestation – this form is required and asks you to attest to the fact that you have a current and valid copy of the documents listed on the form that you could easily and quickly send to us upon request
  2. Patriot Act – this form is required and asks you to attest that your organization is in compliance with counterterrorism policies
  3. United Way Workplace Campaign (Certification) – this form is required and asks that you plan to host a workplace campaign if you become a certified partner
