How Does the Decatur County United Fund Work?
Now in our 63rd year, Decatur County United Fund continues to enrich our community by addressing local priorities and focusing on the building blocks of opportunity: health, education, and financial stability. As a leader, funder, and collaborator, the Decatur County United Fund partners with more than 18 local nonprofits on programs and initiatives addressing basic needs and services: food, housing, domestic violence, abuse, literacy, mentoring, advocacy and more.
Creating lasting change requires focusing on these human and social service needs while simultaneously addressing root causes.
Decatur County United Fund conducts an annual county-wide campaign that raises funds from individuals, employment campaigns and businesses. The funds are then distributed to non-profit agencies who serve Decatur County residents.
How are Funds Distributed?
The Decatur County United Fund Community Investment Committee, which consists of United Fund Board and non-board volunteers, reviews grant applications from agencies requesting funding in Decatur County. The Community Investment Committee makes those recommendations to the United Fund Board of Directors on how dollars should be spent. The group carefully reviews community needs and bases funding on the most critical needs, paying careful attention to programs which will utilize United Fund donations most efficiently and effectively.
