The need for United Way
Why do we need United Way in NL?
United Way is an efficient fundraising organization for all sizes of charities, with funds allocated where the need is greatest within the community.
How is United Way different & important?
United Way is different & important because it evaluates all charities and needs within our community and allocates funding where the need is greatest. It does not focus on one cause or organization, but redistributes donations to multiple beneficiaries, large and small.
How does United Way determine where the need is greatest?
A committee of volunteers who represent a cross-section of the community, and have a background in at least one of the impact areas, reviews applications from charities annually.
The committee distributes funds to support projects in each of the impact areas. The committee is also responsible for researching community needs, collaborating with community partners and assessing projects that have been funded.
