Community Impact Committee

As a committee of the Board of Directors of United Way of the Dutchess-Orange Region, the Community Impact Committee establishes funding priorities and invests resources to fulfill our organization's Community Impact goals. This committee of volunteers provides direction as to the allocation of resources in the Community Fund, and measures the results of our funded partner activities. They have been instrumental in the development of our Blueprint for Change, and RFP Process.
