Community Investment

 

How does United Way invest funds raised from the annual campaign? 

United Way of the Lakeshore's community investment process focuses resources and relies on local expertise to provide solutions to critical education, income and health issues facing people in the Lakeshore area.  Our funding model is built on our base of volunteers and workplace campaign donors to strategically invest in health and human service agency partners that demonstrate collaboration, efficiency and effective use of resources with measurable results through targeted programs and service delivery. Dollars raised in a particular county are used to fund projects in only that county. Click Here To View Our Community Invested Programs! 

Community Investment Volunteer

Community Investment volunteers help determine where the funds raised during United Way’s annual campaign are invested. They review program applications, tour program sites and meet to discuss the program’s effectiveness. Programs are categorized in one of the three impact areas of education, financial stability/basic needs, and health/safety.
 

Join a volunteer panel in your area of interest and expertise!

The Community Investment Process offers comprehensive training to volunteers before they hear presentations about local programs, then make recommendations on grant investments to our Board of Directors. Each panel consists of a blend of returning and new volunteers, chaired by an Impact Team Leader.

  • Income Panel 1: (Income Stability, Childcare, Housing, Utilities) 
  • Income Panel 2: (Long-Term Self Sufficiency, Jobs, Savings, Transportation) 
  • Education Panel 1: (Reading By Age 8, Early Literacy)
