Brant United Way currently provides over $1 million in grants each year to local charities and charities with a local presence. This funding is made possible because of the generous donations from thousands of members of our community during our annual campaign.
To have the greatest impact in our community, and to be the best stewards of the financial gifts from our donors, Brant United Way needs to understand the area of greatest need in our community and we need to know where our investment will have the greatest results.
Brant United Way plays such an important role in our community. It is key that we continue to have access to the best information possible to make our funding decisions.
We need to be local experts.
With that goal in mind, we are pleased to announce our new Community Impact Committee.
This new committee will be comrprised of key community partners including donors, community experts and leaders from local charities. Together they will work to identify and assess the areas of need in the community, and make recommendations on how Brant United Way can direct the funding so that it will have the greatest impact.
This is a signficant undertaking and we will take the time needed to do this right. We will spend the better part of two years to learn as much as we can and develop the tools we need to support this new direction.
Throughout that time, we remain committed to sharing updates and information with our community.
