United Way Opens Up Annual Community Investment Process

The United Way is opening up its Annual Community Investment process to any nonprofit organization that meets the needs of people in Door County and strengthens the United Way’s mission of “empowering people to build better lives.”

When asked about the focus areas for programs to be considered for funding, Executive Director Amy Kohnle explained, “After extensive research, four critical areas of focus were identified by residents of Door County: basic needs, community, health care and AODA (Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse). Each of these areas have multiple goals that we are committed to achieving through our funding process. Any qualified program in the community that can help achieve those goals, is strongly encouraged to apply.”

Applications are due April 25, prior to 3 pm. During May and June, applicants will meet with the volunteers who are on the Community Investment Committee to review their application.

Kohnle is available to answer any questions that organizations may have in regards to whether their organization is qualified to apply to United Way for 2015 funding. Contact the United Way office at 920.746.9645 for an application form.
