eligible, any new agency must have a 501c3 status and provide social service programs

This year’s volunteer committee is comprised of members of the United Way
Board of Directors and other citizens of our community. Applying agencies will be
expected to answer and explain how their agency fits into the United Way’s mission
statement. The United Way of Miami County mission statement is: to provide direction
and accountability to promote education, health, and financial independence.
After the question and answer sessions the Committee will then make
recommendations to the United Way of Miami County Board of Directors. The Board
will vote at the regular April meeting on which agencies will receive funds from the 2017
Fall Campaign. The amount that each agency will receive is determined after the Fall
Campaign is completed, based on donor pledges. Anyone with questions can call the
