Grant Review Volunteers

Volunteer To Invest In Portage County

United Way of Portage County invests funds raised during the annual campaign through a volunteer lead review and recommendation process.  Grant Review Volunteers engage in a multi-year selection and review process that matches community needs, evidence based best practices and program interventions.  These volunteers make review applications for funding, select the most effective programs and then monitor their long term outcomes.  For more information on the program please call 330-297-1424.
