Funding

Have an opportunity to help fund the FCUAC or need funding for a community project?
The funding mechanism for the UAC has changed. We are no longer funded by King County directly for our operations. As of June 30, 2013  we received notice from the IRS that we have been approved as a tax exempt 501 (c) (3) non profit organization. This allows us to receive tax deductible Bequests, devises, transfers, or Gifts under IRS code. Four Creeks intends for some funding available each year for community benefit projects. Our support of National Night Out is an example. This year, the UAC is also working on a project to make high-quality maps available to residents in the Four Creeks area.

If you have an idea for a project that would provide broad benefit in the Four Creeks area, send it along with your email address, or contact a current member.
