United Way of Indian River County is looking for passionate and community-minded volunteers to serve on one of several virtual Citizen Review Panels. Our primary concern is for the health of all participants involved and will be instituting a completely electronic Citizens Review Process this year. All meetings will be conducted virtually or via phone conference and volunteer panelists will be required to have a computer with speakers and an internet connection.
Throughout April, Associate Panelists via online conferencing will review grant applications, conduct non-profit agency site visits, and evaluate and recommend programming to aid in funding decisions. Each team is made up of a Panel Chair, Financial Analyst, and several Associate Panelists. These volunteers come together to review applications for funding, conduct site visits, and ultimately rate the program, suggesting a level of funding for the coming fiscal year. The goal is to ensure that every United Way funded program is effective and efficient in addressing priority needs in our community.As a Citizens Review Process volunteer, you are helping direct local donor funds to fill the biggest gaps in our community. This year, 25 non-profit agencies have applied for grant funding under the Impact Areas of Health and Financial Stability.
