fund distribution process

United Way of Central West Virginia awards grants to nonprofit agencies located in Kanawha, Putnam, Logan, Clay and Boone Counties. The funded programs must address one of three broad-based community impact areas:

  • Education: Helping Individuals Achieve their Potential
  • Health: Improving People’s Health
  • Financial Stability: Promoting Financial Stability and Independence
  • Safety Net: Meeting Basic Needs

Community impact dollars are allocated through a grant application process. Citizen Review Teams, made up of trained community volunteers, make fund distribution recommendations (see allocation process below). United Way’s Board of Directors is responsible for all final funding decisions. Organizations receiving United Way funds are accountable for the responsible use of those funds and must file annual reports measuring their service impact.
