Through the annual United Way of Hancock County workplace campaign effort, $2,043,081 has been issued through grants and designations to 37 programs measurably improving peoples lives in Hancock County.

“Our 2019 campaign has come in close to prior years at nearly $2.9 million. Because we wanted to get as many dollars back to our local agencies as possible, strong steps were taken to reduce expenses,” said United Way CEO Angela DeBoskey.

“We were able to dramatically reduce costs, which allowed us to remain within 4% of what we funded to local agencies last year. That’s a win for our agencies, the community, our donors and United Way.”

Agency program grants are evaluated by trained community volunteers. Programs are vetted for alignment with United Ways mission and how well-positioned the agency is to carry out the program and achieve the proposed outcomes. Fifty-four volunteers were involved in this years grant process.

United Way grants are combined with donor designations and corporate matches to determine total program and agency funding raised through the United Way annual campaign.
