Fund Distribution Panel

Dear Community Member:

We are working to identify volunteers for the United Way of Monroe Lenawee/Counties Fund
Distribution process for the 2022 campaign of Monroe dollars. As have done in the past, the
United Way has implemented some changes to the process, including web-based application
reviews and a funding focus on United Way’s three impact areas: education, financial stability
and health.

Each of the six panels will be co-chaired by a United Way board member and a community
member-at-large volunteer. United Way member agencies will be assigned to a panel based on
the community needs they support through their program(s).

We need volunteers to serve on one of the six panels. Volunteers are the integral part of the
allocations process. They help decide how the dollars raised during this year’s campaign are
allocated to the agency programs so that services offered through the United Way of Monroe/
Lenawee Counties member agencies will continue for those needing assistance. To be a panel
member you must be a contributor to the United Way campaign and attend the Orientation on
January 12, 2023 at the Monroe County Community College. No items will be distributed at
this time.

Enclosed is a Community Needs Fund Distribution application. If you are interested in joining
us in this process and feel comfortable with the web-based review process, please complete the
application and mail to: United Way of Monroe/Lenawee Counties, 216 N. Monroe St., Monroe,
MI 48162. You may fax it to 734-242-3378, or scan it and e-mail to:

Please feel free to make additional copies for others you feel may want to participate in the process.
If there are any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
