United Way of Nevada County’s citizen review teams forming now

United Way of Nevada County’s annual Community Investment Process for calendar year 2015 is underway. Application packets are available for any community based, no-profit 501(C)(3) organization that has provided health and human services to the residents of Nevada County for at least three years. Applications to request funding were due on March 31, 2015. New affiliate and non-funded applications are still being accepted until May 7. Funds being distributed will come from the United Way of Nevada County (UWNC) Community Impact Fund.

All applicants are reviewed by The UWNC Community Investment Committee, The UWNC Board of Directors, and the 2015 Citizen Review Teams from the community. This review process will include site visits with all the applicant organizations by the Citizen Review Teams. Any community member that is interested in being on a Citizens Review Team should contact United Way at 530-274-8111 or email admin@uwnc.org.

United Way of Nevada County’s mission is to improve lives by mobilizing the caring power of the community. UWNC has been working hard to develop a new strategic plan in order to make the most impact. UWNC will be concentrating on the basic needs of those in the community, which include food, emergency shelter and access to health care. UWNC has revised their application to reflect the new strategic priority, which is to strive to assure individuals and families in Nevada County are able to meet their Basic Needs. UWNC envisions a community where all individuals and families achieve their desired potential through healthy lives, education and income stability.
