Eyes and Ears of Donors: Town of Palm Beach United Way welcomes Allocation Committee volunteers

The allocations process is one of the most important responsibilities we have at the Town of Palm Beach United Way.

We are committed to ensuring donor dollars are effectively and efficiently invested into education, health and income-based programs in Palm Beach County that address the most critical health and human service needs in our community.

So each year, we ask dozens of community volunteers to serve as the eyes and ears of more than 2,500 donors by vetting these programs to make sure they achieve measurable results and meet the needs of the most vulnerable children, individuals and families in our community.

“Our generous contributors know that we take the allocation process very seriously and can count on our committee to ensure their dollars are invested wisely into our partner agencies making a real difference in Palm Beach County,” said Board Chairman Jay Boodheshwar.

On Monday, January 22 about 100 of our Allocation Committee volunteers kicked off the grant review process with a meet and greet cocktail part at Renato’s Palm Beach.
