dollars at work
Ever wonder how the dollars you give are invested?
Each Spring, volunteers who live and work in Greater High Point take on the task of distributing funds raised in our annual campaign to our 28 partner agencies. Our volunteers thoroughly review each agency’s finances and programs for relevance and effectiveness. Fund distribution is a four step process:
Step 1: Agency Application
Partner agencies submit financial records and a detailed application explaining their funding requests
Step 2: Accountability Review Team
Volunteer financial professionals review each agency to ensure that they are financially sound, and that they have been and will continue to be good stewards of funds.
Step 3: Agency Tours
Volunteers (Panel Review Team) tour each agency to experience first-hand where the programs requesting funding take place
Step 4: Agency Presentations
Partner agencies meet with the Panel Review Team members to answer questions about program outcomes and application details.
After presentations, the community members that serve on the Panel Review Teams make funding recommendations to the United Way Board of Directors.
Membership on the Panel Review Team is open to anyone who lives or works in the Greater High Point community and is not employed by a partner agency. To volunteer, contact Latoya Bullock at (336) 899-0879 or email@example.com.
We guarantee contributions to United Way of Greater High Point are changing lives and improving the quality of life in our community! See how with some stories below!
Meet Alejandra & Ashley
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Piedmont
YWCA of High Point
As a result of unemployment, through no fault of his own, Jonathan became homeless. While Jonathan was a hard worker with a Bachelor’s Degree, he found himself in need of shelter at Open Door Ministries to get back on his feet.
Now, he is working at GTCC teaching adult classes and English as a Second Language. His drive to succeed and help others fuels his constant contagious smile. Without United Way funding Open Door Ministries, Jonathan may have had nowhere to turn.
Meet the Oak Hill Girl Scouts
They meet in a United Way funded program at Oak Hill Elementary as an offered elective.
Without this program, most of these girls would not have the means or transportation be able to participate as Girl Scouts. Because of your United Way dollars, they are developing critical life skills taught by positive role models. They have a place to belong.
