On Monday, January 23, 2017 the Annual Town of Palm Beach United Way allocation process began with a “Meet your Team” luncheon at the Royal Poinciana Chapel.
Each year, millions of dollars are allocated to health and human service programs in Palm Beach County through the Town of Palm Beach United Way. These agency programs provide vital services to the most vulnerable individuals and families in Palm Beach County. This funding could not be distributed without the Town of Palm Beach United Way’s volunteer driven, allocation process.
During the allocation process, the volunteers will assess the effectiveness and efficiency of each program that applies for funding. This year, 101 dedicated individuals on fourteen different teams will participate in the review. During the next three months, they will serve as the eyes and ears of more than 2,500 donors. These individuals will analyze key financial information, visit the agencies, meet with the staff and Board Members of the agency and finally, make funding recommendations to the Town of Palm Beach United Way Board of Trustees.
The Allocation Process volunteers are a diverse group of community representatives with a broad range of expertise and skill. Their knowledge, passion and dedication to this process is invaluable to the Town of Palm Beach United Way and the community we serve.
