Helen Bersted Memorial Grant

2017 Recipients Announced!

The Helen Bersted Memorial Grant was established in 2015 to honor the life and legacy of Warren County United Way's first, and long-time executive director, Helen Bersted. Bersted's work in this community has left an incredible mark. As one of the founding members of both Warren Achievement Center and Warren County United Way, her dedication and inspiration continues to provide service to thousands in Warren County each and every year.

Each year, Warren County United Way leaders will determine the funds allocated for this community gift. Funds for the Helen Bersted Memorial Grant are possible through the Len G. Everett Endowment.

The Helen Bersted Memorial Grant application for 2017-2018 will re-open late Fall of 2017
