Community Investment

United Way's Community Investment Fund Addresses challenges that are too big for any one agency to solve alone.

The Community Investment Fund supports a variety of local programs that address the biggest needs in our community. 

The Community Investment process is driven by a committed group of volunteers from across our community. Each community grant application is reviewed and rated by a group of volunteers. The comprehensive review includes financial and administrative information, program evaluation and site visits. United Way requests each applicant provide not just a program description, but outcomes that show results. Organizations that are awarded grants are required to submit six-month progress reports and an end-of-year report on program outcomes, ensuring any donor dollars are spent wisely.
