For People Who Want To Make an Impact
The Brown County United Way is the expert in creating lasting change. Our local volunteers from all walks of life rigorously study the needs and changes of Brown County and work to measurably improve community conditions. Nearly 100 volunteers serve on three Impact Councils that focus on the following areas:
- Basic Needs & Self-Sufficiency
- Children, Youth & Families
- 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.
