Community Investment Volunteers

Become a Community Investments Volunteer

Our grantmaking process relies 100% on community volunteers to drive decisions about the investment of resources in our local nonprofits. United Way staff guide, facilitate, and share data to help frame the process, and community volunteers ultimately make the funding decisions. We’ll be calling for Community Investment volunteers at the end of 2024 to support our 2025 – 2026 grant cycle. Stay tuned!
