Community Investment

United Way has a competitive allocation process that identifies which organizations have the potential to make the greatest difference in our community in the areas of Education, Income, Health, and Basic Needs. Investment panels are led by community volunteers who make funding suggestions based on each agency's grant application and panel presentation. Final funding decisions are then made by the United Way Board of Directors.
