Volunteers needed to award over $800,000 in Eastern Maine!

United Way of Eastern Maine (UWEM) is recruiting 80 + volunteers to help us make  grant awards for our upcoming funding cycle supporting health and human service programs in Hancock, Penobscot, Piscataquis, Waldo and Washington counties.  Every two years UWEM launches a competitive funding application that is open to non-profit health and human service organizations throughout our service area.  UWEM accepts applications that focus on improving the lives of individuals in the areas of Education, Income, or Health.

UWEM relies on volunteer funding panels to review requests and make funding recommendations to the UWEM Board of Directors.  These panels are comprised of community members, service recipients, UWEM donors, and non-profit professionals.  No experience is necessary and training is provided.
