Fund Distribution Volunteer Opportunities
The hard work has been done. Now it’s time to review our agencies and distribute the funds for the betterment of the community.
We invite you to participate in our 2021 Grant review process as a member of a review panel. Help to ensure that new grants will meet the needs determined in the 2020-2023 Community Needs Assessment and 2020 ALICE Report. Grant recipients must reflect priorities and valuable input of the community, agencies and partners in the areas of Education, Health and Income.
Panel members are an important part of the grant process:
- Panel members represent the contributing public and help to insure that donated funds are well spent.
- Panel members work with other volunteers to review five to nine grant applicants and recommend monetary levels of support for specified programs.
- Panel members receive training (February/March).
- The time commitment for panel members is about 10-15 hours total February-April. This represents the training, the site visits and the panel presentations.
An outcome-based review process focusing on service results by grant applicants has simplified reporting. This allows the panelists to see the difference made in the lives of the people being served.
