United Way Impact Funding Team

Interested in non-profit work and the grant review process? Join United Way’s Community Impact Funding Team!

Deadline January 15.

Come learn about the behind-the-scenes work involved in the grant approval process. United Way of Addison County (UWAC) is seeking Middlebury College student volunteers to review grant applications from nonprofits that are working to improve the physical, mental and emotional health of Addison County residents. Joining the Community Impact Funding (CIF) review team is a great opportunity for anyone interested in learning about the grant making process, as well as the types of needs being addressed by our local nonprofits. In the past three years, reviewers helped UWAC invest $991,605 in 33 programs covering 28 different agencies across the region. Volunteer responsibilities include reviewing applications, conducting site visits and making funding recommendations to the UWAC Board of Directors. The work will require a time commitment of 10-15 hours for meetings, plus approximately 30 additional hours of grant review and scoring between the last week of January through the beginning of April.  Accommodations will be made for absences over February Break and Spring Break. Experience is not necessary, as UWAC will provide training.  Enthusiasm, curiosity, and a sense of humor are highly valued! Interested students should send their resume and a statement of interest to United Way of Addison County Volunteer Center Coordinator Linnea Oosterman at linnea@unitedwayaddisoncounty.org by January 15, 2019.
