Community Investment Review Panel (HERO IMAGE)

Community Investment Review Panel

The Community Investment Review Panel is a volunteer opportunity for our United Way investors to play an active and critical role in deciding how dollars donated to the United Way are invested in the community.

Every year, organizations apply for grants from the United Way to support their programs. With the help of our Community Investment Committee and the volunteers of the Community Investment Review Panel, these applications are thoughtfully reviewed and evaluated to decide how best to invest the dollars that align with our United Way strategy and will have the greatest overall impact on our community.

This year’s review will focus on grants supporting Bold Goal #1, reducing hunger and homelessness.


• Attend a 3-hour training in February where you will learn investment strategies, desired impact, key requirements, and evaluation tools

• Spend 8-12 hours reviewing proposals of 2-4 programs 

• Participate in a day-long site visit in March, touring agencies and discussing their impact with the members of your panel


Applications are closed for 2020. Please visit our website or watch our Facebook page for when applications open for 2021.
