Tax exempt agencies invited to learn about allocation process

Tax exempt organizations providing human services in Lewis, Marion, Monroe, Ralls, and Shelby Counties are invited to attend an Agency Meeting on Wednesday, March 21 at 9 a.m. at the United Way Office in Hannibal.

Organizations interested in becoming a participating agency of the United Way can attend this meeting to learn about the upcoming allocations process. The allocations process results in local organizations receiving funding from the United Way.

Each year the United Way has a campaign to raise dollars from the community to invest in agencies that work to better the community. Participating agencies chosen this spring would receive funding from the United Way during November of 2018-October of 2019.

The application and funding forms for organizations will be made available at this meeting. These forms will be due to the United Way office on Friday, April 13 by 4 p.m.

Agencies will have to attend an Allocation Hearing during late April/early May where members of the United Way’s Allocation Committee can learn directly about the organization, their financial management, and provided services.

Concluding these Allocation Hearings, the United Way’s Allocation Committee will determine which local agencies to fund. It is anticipated that this will be determined and announced during early May. For questions regarding this process please contact the United Way Office at 573-221-2761.
