Community Fund Volunteer

Community Fund Volunteers are responsible for reviewing requests for funding from local agencies, and performing site visits to funded programs to see them “in action”.

No prior knowledge is necessary to become a Community Fund Volunteer.  United Way provides training.  United Way welcomes volunteers with a variety of backgrounds and interests. The only restriction is that Community Fund Volunteers cannot be either board or staff members of any United Way member agency.

The time commitment for a Community Fund Volunteer is approximately 4-5 hours per week for approximately 8 weeks during the months of April and May. Site visits are done every other year, and the time commitment is 4-8 hours to perform 1-2 site visits.

For further information on becoming a Community Fund Volunteer contact Stacey Rein.

As a Community Fund Volunteer, we're helping to make our community a better place to live. I am proud to be a United Way volunteer.
