The United Way Board of Directors comprises the 2012/13 Budget & Allocation Committee. The Board made a decision to process this procedure so they could better understand each agency and their missions. The Board met on June 26, 2012 to review and make recommendations on each agencys' budget request. The Boards' recommendation is based on the economy, the funds that were raised last year and the needs in the community. This year the Board made recommendations on 7 agencies and 3 partners.

How are the funds allocated?

Member Agencies file formal requests for funds. Included are: budget requests, description of program services and effectiveness of the programs, detailed information about agency and its mission and detailed information about agency finances. Every agency has to provide United Way with a copy of their audit.

The Budget & Allocation Committee (made up of volunteers) meets and reviews the requests.

Agency Directors respond to questions during the final hearing.

Following hearings the committee makes recommendations to the United Way Executive Committee for funding. Recommendations are presented to the Board of Directors for approval. This determines the United Way goal for that year.

After Board approval, agency Directors are informed by writing how much their agency will be allocated.

Payments are issued quarterly.
