Thank You to Our Focus Area Volunteers!

You are here

The work that this incredible group of volunteers do can not be overstated.  Together they read and review funding applications from x programs and they must critically analyze the merit of the applications, the community needs and funding priorities of United Way and then they must weigh all of this against the available monies we have to invest.  It is a tough job and they take it seriously.
