UWTC Allocations Team volunteers follow group orientation by dividing into focus area teams to start reviewing grants at the 2018 training session.

United Way of Transylvania County (UWTC) seeks individuals with experience and expertise in management and nonprofits, and people interested in the focus areas of health, education and financial stability to join its Allocations Team. Team members will read and evaluate grant applications from local programs before making program recommendations to applicants and funding recommendations to United Way's Board.

This opportunity invites volunteers to participate in UWTC's annual allocations process. The process uses community input to ensure accountability for all programs receiving funds allocated by UWTC.

Allocations Team members will conduct site visits, meet with program representatives, and evaluate online applications and supporting documents. Allocations Teams will submit their initial reviews by noon, Friday, April 19.

Allocations Team volunteer training will be held from 10 a.m. until noon, Friday, March 22. The training session includes a confidentiality and code of ethics declaration, conflict-of-interest assessment, process overview and assignments to focus area review teams. Pre-registration is requested; sign up through or contact UWTC by noon, Thursday, March 21, to receive location details.
