Allocations Volunteer Application

At United Way of Southeastern Connecticut, Community Investment is the oversight and funding of a multi-million dollar network of partner programs offered at local health and human service agencies. Allocations volunteers act as stewards of donor dollars, ensuring they are wisely invested in local programs that demonstrate need in the community, are managed efficiently, and produce positive results.


The hallmark of United Way Community Investment efforts is community oversight. Monies are allocated through a volunteer-driven distribution process during which Community Investment volunteers spend countless hours reviewing each funded program. Volunteers visit each program, interview agency personnel and board members, and analyze budgets and audits. Volunteers then decide how the funds are invested in local programs that get results.
