United Way of Franklin County (UWFC) recently trained citizen volunteers in preparation for the upcoming fundraising season.

Citizen "reviewers" visit agencies that have applied for United Way funding to learn more about them and to gauge each applicant's suitability for funding.

"This is a critical part of the allocations process," said Roy Enslow, president of the UWFC Board of Directors. "With limited resources and growing need, the board relies on these trained volunteers to make funding recommendations so that we can make sure the funds go where most needed."

Citizen reviewers will work in teams during June and July to "review funding applications, visit agencies and ferret out issues that may affect funding," added Nancy Bell, UWFC executive director.

Teams report to the UWFC Board of Directors in August.

"We believe this is a very fair and democratic way of making these funding decisions," Bell added. "We are so grateful that these volunteers step up to do this important work. Some have served in this capacity for a decade. Others will experience their first reviews this summer."
