United Fund of Globe-Miami to discontinue funding for Taliesen; Announces 30 applications received for 2018

Globe, AZ- United Fund prepares for 2018 Campaign

United Fund of Globe-Miami Inc. (UF) is proud to announce that we have received 30 applications for funding in 2018.  These applications are currently under review to determine which organizations will be funded.  With this number of applications, UF continues to need the community’s support to raise funds to assist the local non-profits.

Our mission continues to be:  Strategically elevating the Globe-Miami communities by connecting local charities and donors.

The 2018 campaign will kick-off for the General Public in October.  We remind everyone that donations are accepted anytime during the year to help meet the budgeted dollars for each approved agency.


Budgeted funding for 2017 is $600,000 but due to additional donations from the public, we are on track to invest $755,000 into our local community non-profit organizations.  Recipient agencies during our current year are:

4H Leaders Council

Boy Scouts of America – Grand Canyon

We want to assure our donors that their dollars are being kept in the local community and that we are being cognizant of the impact those dollars have on the lives of our citizens and non-profit organizations!


After careful review of the results of the Taliesin Globe-Miami Studio Project, The United Fund Board has discontinued their funding of this project.  Our local non-profit mission and vision were not being met by the Studio Project.  To best serve the Globe-Miami Community, we have “circled the wagons” and refocused our investments in local charities.

If you would like more information about the 2018 Fundraising Campaign, please contact Maryn Belling, executive director at 928-961-3620 or email at UnitedFund@Cableone.net.
