2013-14 Application for Funding

Through United Way of Escambia County’s Funds Distribution process, United Way donors come together to make recommendations on how undesignated donations should be invested in non-profit programs that serve our community. 

Funding requests from programs receiving funds from United Way are broken down into 4 areas/panels: Education, Financial Stability, Health1, Health2/Other. The Health2 panel will also evaluate any programs applying outside these core areas.  Each panel is comprised of 15-20 volunteers, ensuring a community-wide perspective in the review process. Each member brings a unique perspective, life experiences and insight into the process. It is the collective voice that builds consensus for funding recommendations.

2013/14 Written Application Review Checklist 

The panel framework is similar to last year, with panels in each of United Way’s three priority areas of Education, Financial Stability, and Health.  The 2012/13 partner program list shows where partner programs fit into the panels last year. 
If you are unsure which panel your program should request to this year, please contact Rob Engel at 444-7140 or rob@unitedwayescambia.org.
