Community Investment Panel


United Way is accountable to the public through its community investment process. This is another unique aspect of United Way. It is the only organization where the people who give their dollars are the ones who decide where the money goes.. They make sure funds are invested in programs that meet the education, financial stability, health and basic needs of our community.
