Fund Distribution Committee
This committee enlists the help of about 30 volunteers each year. Volunteers each contribute about 15 hours during the 8-week assignment. After a thorough review of all the agency programs seeking funds these volunteers make a funding recommendation to the United Way board of directors. Sheri Hargrave chairs the fund distribution committee. The 2022 process began on March 30 and ends May 10th. “Guard we must our contributor’s trust” is our credo. Accountability isn’t just a good thing…it’s everything.
