The funding year for United Way Agencies runs from November to October.
Application process is February – March prior to the beginning of the upcoming fiscal/funding year. For example application and approval to be a United Way agency took place in February, 2008 for funding that will begin in November 2008 – October 2009.
Allocations take place in April. During that time members of the ten member volunteer committee will review applications, make on-site reviews and listen to each presentation at the Monday evening hearings. Hearings last for five to six weeks.
The United Way Board of Directors reviews and approves the recommendation of the Allocation Committee at the regular meeting on the first Wednesday in May. Agencies are notified in writing of the level of funding that will begin in November.
The United Way of the Mark Twain Area deeply appreciates the effort and hours put in by the volunteers of the Allocation Committee.
