2017 Agency Partners

The United Way Allocations Committee provides the vital service of monitoring the distribution of funds to United Ways partner agencies. The committee, comprised of volunteers from the community, meets with representatives from each agency, reviews the amount requested and carefully scrutinizes financial records and programs. This process takes place over several meetings and cumulates with recommendations to the UW Board regarding the amount of support allotted to each agency for the coming year. As the year progresses, the agencies file reports regarding expenditures and progress made in meeting goals and objectives.
