Leading the program review and fund distribution each year are trained volunteers who live or work in New London County. Volunteer teams are convened to evaluate program performance and analyze program results. There is a separate volunteer Financial Review Panel with fiscal expertise that carefully assesses the financial health of all agencies.

United Way’s Allocations Cabinet Co-chairs, Denise Stapienski of Chelsea Groton Bank and Ray Stanley, a retiree from Electric Boat, then bring funding recommendations made by the volunteers to United Way Board of Directors for approval.
