Where Your Donation Goes – Part Three
Part 1 and 2 of “Where Your Donation Goes” gave you the information about all the preliminary work done in the allocation process. Over the last three months the teams of volunteers did the hard work necessary to ensure funds raised in our annual campaign are spent in the most efficient and effective way possible. It is estimated that each volunteer:
Logged in about 45 miles traveling all over Palm Beach County
- Spent approximately 10 hours reading grant applications
- Spent around 15 hours visiting partner agencies
- Asked the tough questions to make sure they understood the strengths of each program
IT’S NOT MAGIC!!!
Funding decisions for the Town of Palm Beach United Way are not magic. They are a result of hard work and dedication to the community. After one of the meetings, I asked one of the volunteers why she spends some many hours volunteering in this capacity. She said she thoroughly enjoyed it and added something I will never forget, “In order to make change, you must do it from the inside.”
THIS YEAR’S A-TEAM!!!
Below are the names of our 79 allocation volunteers. They are the heart and soul of the Town of Palm Beach United Way. If you are one of them – THANK YOU. If you know one of these hardworking volunteers – THANK THEM.
