Seeking Community Members for Community-based Grant Program!
The United Way of Addison County is searching for community members who are interested in serving on the Community Impact Funding (CIF) Committee! The Community Impact Funding Process is a community-based grant program where members will be involved in evaluating financial sustainability, governance, program design and outcomes of non-profit agencies seeking United Way funding. CIF works to engage community members in meeting the health and human service needs of the community. It is important to understand that United Way donors and volunteers expect this grant process to demonstrate that funding is predicated upon agency integrity, sound management, financial stability, the ability to identify community needs, and programs/initiatives that efficiently and effectively address those needs. This is a tremendous opportunity for those interested in leadership and community involvement. Call 388-7189 or email Lizzy@unitedwayaddisoncounty.org for more information.
We are also looking for volunteers to be FAST Tax Assistants. The program serves low to moderate income clients who are familiar with computers, but need assistance with inputting their tax information into a free online tax program similar to TurboTax. Volunteers will work primarily out of the United Way office (in Middlebury!) from February 1st to April 15th and will receive a comprehensive orientation and training. There are daytime, late afternoon, evening and weekend shifts available. For more information and/or questions, talk to Steve or Lizzy at the United Way of Addison County.
