Vision Council

LAUW Vision Council

We invite you to join us as a member of our 2024 Vision Council. We recently invited nonprofits interested in being Partner Programs for the 2024-2025 fiscal year to apply for funding. We turn to you - our community members and supporters - to help guide our funding towards community programs that provide long-term solutions to community needs.

This year, Vision Council will again be in-person, allowing you to take a day to review applicant programs and tour their facilities or hear a presentation from program staff. Review Days this year will be held April 2223 and 24. If interested, you may select the day that works best for you, and review 4-6 applicant programs.  All days run approximately 8am-4pm, beginning and ending in the CTC Room at Brainerd Lakes Chamber.  Lunch will be provided.

A training session will take place from 3:30-4:30 on Tuesday, April 9, in the CTC Room at Brainerd Lakes Chamber. The training will be recorded for those that are unable to attend. Upon completion of the training (live or recorded), you will receive the scoring rubrics and information for the programs you will be touring.

If you would like to join us as a 2024 Vision Council member, please email no later than Friday, April 5. Please provide your name, contact information, preferred date you would like to attend, and any dietary restrictions you may have. 

Thank you for your ongoing support of the Lakes Area United Way and our Partner Programs!

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