Where Your Money Goes

Each year over 100 community volunteers meet with representatives from each partner agency
to review their application for funding, program outcomes, financial statements and governance
to determine the level of support the program will receive from United Way.
This process of allocation ensures that the money that is donated through the annual campaign is going to quality programs.
