We encourage community members like you to join us in reviewing all funding applications from local agencies and help us decide how to award funds. These volunteers form panels that rate the ability of each agency to impact community needs. The results of these assessments, combined with available funding, are used to determine the dollars each program receives. The United Way Board, which is also made up of local volunteers, is instrumental in guiding strategic decisions governing the investment of staff time and resources. Community involvement ensures the best possible outcome for programming and initiatives based on our most recent Community Mapping report.
