Help Decide Where the Money Goes

We're now recruiting Allocations Volunteers to help invest donor dollars in local programs that change lives and advance the common good for all of us. Allocations Panels are teams of volunteers that ensure donations to United Way are wisely invested in health and human service programs that help in the areas of education, income, and health -- the building blocks for a good quality of life.

Relying on applications, site visits, program results, and financial records, United Way Allocations Volunteers help decide how United Way funding is allocated among programs that work together to change lives and advance the common good in New London County.

United Way is seeking individuals to serve on Allocations Panels that meet between mid-February and May. Training and orientation is provided. Each meeting or site visit typically lasts about two hours, and there are panels available in both mornings and evenings.
In between meetings, volunteers will be required to read through materials on their own. There are four breaks during the Allocations cycle so volunteers do not have to commit to every week during this time period.

For more information or if you are interested, please contact Anne Stockton, United Way Community Investment Director, at or 860.464.3321.
