TERRE HAUTE -- The United Way of the Wabash Valley is looking for volunteers to help evaluate how best to distribute campaign donor dollars to meet human service needs in the Wabash Valley.
Volunteers are needed to serve as members of the funding review panels during the 2008 agency program review process.
Volunteers who serve on the United Way of the Wabash Valley funding review panels recommend to the United Way Fund Distribution Committee and, ultimately to the United Way Board of Directors, how the funds raised in the United Way campaign should be used for the greatest benefit to the people of the Wabash Valley, and how the money should actually be distributed to nearly 100 health and human service programs of the United Way member agencies.
The time commitment for participation in this year’s review process is early January through mid-February. During the period, volunteers will meet five or six times, usually for two hours per session.
All meetings take place in the early evening. Some extra time will be also necessary to visit an agency and its appropriate health and human service programs.
All United Way donors are eligible to serve on funding review panels. More than 100 volunteers are needed for the process.
United Way of the Wabash Valley’s partner agencies and their health and human service programs cover six counties in the Wabash Valley, including: Clay, Parke, Sullivan, Vermillion and Vigo in Indiana and Clark in Illinois.
For more information or to volunteer, visit the United Way of the Wabash Valley website at www.uwwv.org and fill out a conflict of interest form located under “form distribution.”
