What's Happening at United Way:

United Way of Nevada County is gearing up for our annual allocation process. Through this process, your donations are granted to the best of the Nevada County health and human services non-profit organizations. This ensures that your donation dollars make a difference in the lives of people in our community. We encourage and recruit community residents to help us. The primary way you can participate is as a member of a Citizen Review Team (CRT).

A CRT member works with other county residents and/or business owners to meet with local non-profit leaders, interview them about the services they perform and make recommendations directly to the Board of Directors of United Way of Nevada County for allocating money based upon their non-profit's grant request. What a great way to learn about our wonderful non-profit partners and make your voice count for the charitable organizations that make an impact in the areas of food security, access to healthcare and emergency shelter!

If you are interested and would like to help, please contact us. The CRT process will take about 12 to 15 hours of your time between the end of March and the end of April. We would love to have you involved.
