The Community Impact Cabinet is a dedicated group of volunteers who play a pivotal role in shaping the trajectory of our community impact initiatives. They bring together their diverse skills, unique perspectives, and unwavering commitment to drive social change. The community impact cabinet members will be engaged with the community impact team of United Way Halton and Hamilton on various front. Particularly for evaluating the grant application. The community impact cabinet plays a very important role, supporting United Way’s investment decisions and capacity building supports to non-profit agencies.
United Way strives to make our investment process fair, transparent and accountable. As part of this, we facilitate a community decision-making process about the investment of donor dollars, where a diverse group of community volunteers review applications using United Way’s overall investment strategy and established criteria. Together, volunteers evaluate the alignment and impact of the grant applications, then make recommendations to United Way which is in turn brainstormed by the team of united way Staff and put forth to the Board of Directors for final investment decisions.
