Evaluation & Investment Volunteers Needed

You are here

United Way of Lake County is Actively Searching for 2017 Volunteers to Serve on our Evaluation & Investment Committee

We need you!  United Way's mission to improve the quality of people's lives in Lake County is fueled by people who bring passion, expertise and resources to get things done. Please consider giving some of your time and talent to create lasting solutions that improve life for everyone by serving as a volunteer on our Evaluation & Investment Committee.

Donations made to us are used to fund the most critical issues facing our community, which is where our Evaluation & Investment Committee volunteers come in. The goal is to ensure we fund only programs that are effective, efficient and result in positive outcomes that benefit our residents, and our Evaluation & Investment Committee volunteers make these important decisions.

In fact, the second single most frequently asked question we receive is, "Who decides which programs will benefit from my donation?" -  to which we are proud to report that it is our volunteers who determine which agency programs receive funding.

We are currently in the process of recruiting volunteers and hope you will consider donating your time to this important process. We are accepting applications now through January 13, 2017.

Five separate volunteer panels, which each reflect areas of critical need in Lake County, make up our Evaluation & Investment Committee.These five panels include:

  • Affordable Housing / Basic Needs
  • Health Counseling
  • Seniors
  • Children & Families
  • Health Services

The entire evaluation process will take place from February 2017 - May 2017 for funding which will begin on July 1, 2017.

We want to hear from you! If you are interested in volunteering, please click here now for our volunteer registration form.

Simply fill out the form and return it by January 13, 2017 to Don Joss via:
