Vision Council

United Way Vision Council

Vision Council is a group of community members who come together to review applications and conduct site visits for agencies who have requested United Way funding for specific community-based programs.  Vision Council then determines how they feel United Way funds should be allocated.  These recommendations are made to the United Way Board of Directors who, based on the Vision Council's suggestions, approves funding for the two year cycle. 

Community needs, met by community dollars, determined by community members.
