This week the United Way of Lamar County announced the 2020 grant awards to 25 local partner agencies.
Executive Director Jenny Wilson stated, “I want to thank all the nonprofit agencies that applied for funding as well as our Board of Directors and everyone who served on the Citizen Review Panel.  It is never an easy decision to allocate funds to each agency, especially when we have so many nonprofits in our community do such amazing work.”
Wilson adds, “at the United Way we know that this is the community’s money, and we have a fiduciary duty to be good stewards and keep the public trust.  In addition to written grant applications and financial statements that the agencies must submit, our board members make an on-site visit with each agency and there is an in-depth interview with our Citizen Review Panel.”
The Fall Campaign will kick-off in September with Paris Regional CEO Steve Hyde as Campaign Chair.  The Campaign goal is $500,000 to cover the 2020 allocations awarded this week.
