Volunteers ARE the United Way!

Volunteer Board of Directors: Leading the way for our United Way, the Volunteer Board of Directors sets policies, approves committee recommendations and makes all final decisions about how the Brown County United Way can make the greatest impact in our community.
Community Impact Councils: Brown County United Way convenes three Impact Councils comprised of local volunteers from all walks of life:
  1. Children, Youth & Families
  2. Basic Needs & Self- Sufficiency
  3. Health & Wellness
Council members are responsible for evaluating programs that receive United Way grants and helping to identify community needs. In addition, Impact Council members recommend to the Board of Directors how to best invest Brown County United Way funding based on available dollars and current needs. Impact Councils also provide critical input on the Brown County United Way’s Community Impact Agenda, which is comprised of “community change” strategies that focus on finding solutions to some of Brown County’s most pressing human services concerns. This evaluation process is unique to the United Way and ensures that all donations are invested wisely.
Committees: Between marketing, finance and emerging needs, every element of the United Way has a volunteer committee to provide guidance and direction. Committee Volunteers use their expertise to help make sure United Way is always the best organization it can be.
Emerging Leaders Society: Emerging Leaders Society provides action-minded individuals with an opportunity to shape their community through hands-on leadership. Service projects include preparing students for employment opportunities through mock interviewing, promoting childhood health and wellness, and connecting families to community resources.
Employee Campaign Coordinators: Without these volunteers, there would be no United Way campaign. ECCs run the United Way show at their respective places of employment.
And so much more: Each day, hundreds of volunteers are making an impact on every aspect of the United Way. And through the United Way, thousands of volunteers get to learn hands-on why Brown County is a great place to live and work.
