2016-17 Community Impact Volunteer Committee


United Way of Lake County Evaluation & Investment Volunteer Committee Members

United Way of Lake County volunteers decide where to allocate funds. They spend months researching the needs of the community and reviewing all of the nonprofit programs we fund. Our volunteers work hard to ensure all programs are effective, efficient and result in outcomes that benefit our residents in need. It's a challenging role, but one our volunteers take very seriously. They do the work, so donors aren't faced with the daunting task of determining where the greatest needs in Lake County exist.
