Our Community Stewardship Committee (CSC) is comprised of local volunteers who support the application review process, provide funding recommendations, and support the ongoing review of investments on behalf of our donors. All funding applications are reviewed and assessed by CSC members as well as United Way staff before recommendations for funding are made and sent to the Board of Directors for approval.
Our resources are currently fully committed to our many partners, programs, and initiatives for the upcoming year. See our current program investments.
