United Way of Nevada County funds $92,400.00

United Way of Nevada County has completed its annual allocation process of Community Impact funds. To be a partner with United Way of Nevada County, an organization must comply with an established set of Criteria and Responsibilities. To receive a distribution from United Way of Nevada County, these partners must further comply with an additional set of funding criteria throughout the year. Partners are assessed by United Way of Nevada County through financial audits and citizen review teams for compliance to these criteria, as well as effectiveness in meeting community needs. This process ensures that United Way of Nevada County’s charitable donations are spent in ways to best make an impact in our community. “The community Investment Process is an essential part of the United Way system, this process is very thorough and extensive.”, “It is very important to us that the funds that are being distributed from the Community Impact Fund have maximum impact in the community” commented Megan Timpany, Executive Director of United Way of Nevada County.
This year the United Way Board and Staff went through a nine month Strategic Plan process and established a three year Strategic Plan with very specific goals. The new vision statement is that United Way of Nevada County envisions a community where all individuals and families achieve their desired potential through Healthy Lives, Education and Income stability. To that end United Way of Nevada County continues to strive “to improve lives by mobilizing the caring power of our community”.
United Way’s new service priority is to strive to “assure individuals and families in Nevada County are able to meet their basic need for food, emergency shelter and access to healthcare”. This year United Way of Nevada County allocated $92,400.00 from the Community Impact Fund to the basic needs of food, emergency shelter and access to healthcare.
