United Way of Lake County is Actively Searching for Volunteers to Serve on our 2018 Evaluation & Investment Committee

We need you! Volunteers are the backbone of United Way of Lake County. 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.

As an Evaluations & Investment Committee Volunteer you will:

  • Gain an understanding of issues facing our community
  • Expand your personal & professional networks
  • Represent and provide stewardship for United Way of Lake County donors
  • Make a lasting difference in our community.

Your volunteer work will be interesting, meaningful and ABOVE ALL, crucial to our community.

If you are interested in volunteering, please scroll down to the bottom of the page to complete our volunteer form and one of our team members will get back with you!

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.Our Evaluation & Investment Committee volunteers make these important decisions.

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. Special skills are not required to volunteer. All that’s needed is a passion for helping the residents of our community. We are accepting applications now through January 12, 2018.

Volunteers must be able to participate throughout the entire evaluation process which will take place in 2018, beginning in early February and running through mid-May, for funding which will begin on July 1, 2018.

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

  • Basic Needs  (Meets Tuesdays at 5 pm)
  • Education  (Meets Mondays at 5:15 pm)
  • Health  (Meets Wednesdays at 5 pm)
  • Financial Stability  (Meets Thursdays at 7 am)
