Thank you 2015 Cornerstone Partners!

United Way envisions a world where all individuals and families enjoy a better quality of life through education, financial stability and healthy lives.

One of the most unique benefits of investing in United Way is that a single contribution supports a variety of local community programs, providing resources for families youth and seniors – people from all walks of life, facing all types of situations. United Way invests in programs and initiatives that align with the community needs in three focus areas: Education, Financial Stability, and Health. 

These are the building blocks for a good quality of life. Each affects the others. Good nutrition, physical activity and a regular source of health care improves children’s ability to focus, learn and succeed in school. Family financial stability affects kids mental, physical, cognitive and social development. High school graduation is directly associated with people’s health status and their prospects for a good job.

A Community Investment Committee, comprised of informed volunteers from the community, is charged with reviewing agencies applying for United Way funding by evaluating programs, visiting agency sites, interviewing staff and board members, and reviewing financial records to develop an understanding of the agencies community impact. The council then determines funding recommendations based on criteria such as program outcomes, fiscal accountability and demonstrated need in the community. The recommendations are then presented, reviewed and approved by the United Way Board of Directors.

Please contact Linda Yoder, to learn more about the allocation process or if interested in being part of the Community Investment Committee for the United Way of Marshall County.
