Community Grant Review Committee

We take the responsibility of stewarding your hard-earned dollars seriously. Fifty community-minded volunteers and subject matter experts, as well as your United Way staff, participated in the 2016 Community Grant Review Process.  

More than 600 volunteer hours are spent training, reviewing online applications, scoring myriad criteria and meeting personally with the executive and board leadership of applicant agencies. For two days, Program Partners present their work, tout success stories, articulate organizational efficacy and adhere to a transparent financial review. Following the presentations, 10 volunteer panels developed funding and/or capacity-building recommendations for Program Partners, which will be presented to the UWBR Board of Directors for approval in November.

United Way's investment in the community ensures your donor dollars are directed to efficient programs taking steps to create lasting change.

We extend our heartfelt appreciation to our 50 Community Grant volunteers for lending generously of their time and talent.
