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 multiple 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.
