Early each calendar year a group of approximately 40 volunteers are selected to help make important funding decisions on behalf of the community, area social needs, in support of agencies that are making a significant local impact.
United Way of Washington County East’s Vision is: A caring, engaged and vibrant community, a place where each person has a stable foundation for today, and a hopeful future. Their Mission is: to unite our community and local resources to give each person the opportunity to build a better life.
