Community Impact Cabinet and its Councils

Who decides where the money goes? YOU…and concerned, caring people like you!

Volunteers with expertise in areas related to education, financial stability and basic needs help to ensure that contributors' dollars are distributed in an accountable, responsible manner. This is achieved through reviewing the programs and budgets of agencies and making funding recommendations to the United Way Board of Directors that align with United Way’s community impact goals.

For Community Impact Volunteer Opportunities, call Jason Martinez at 203-757-9855, ext. 116 or [email protected].
