Did you know? Community volunteers drive your United Way! United Way's annual fundraising campaign is spear-headed by volunteer campaign leaders and coordinated by a team of volunteers assigned to particular individuals and businesses in the community. Volunteers pass out the campaign information to their neighbors and co-workers and solicit the return of donations and pledges.
The distribution of the amount raised starts with Citizens Review Panels, comprised of over 50 local United Way donors, who volunteer their time to listen to the funding requests of agencies supported by United Way, and who make recommendations for distribution of annual funds. The United Way Board of Directors, (who are also community-minded volunteers), then review the panel's recommendation, and will adjust funding amounts if necessary (as the current budget considerations require). The Board oversees the operations and expenses of the United Way, making sure that it serves its intended purpose.
Thank you to our many community volunteers who make United Way truly a community organization!
