Advisory Council: Health and Basic Needs
Active Period: August 2023 through October 2023
Function: The purpose of the Heart of Missouri United Way Advisory Council is to provide increased transparency in the impact investment process. Advisory Council volunteers are responsible for recommending to the United Way Board of Directors the best way to invest funds raised in our community for our community. Throughout the process, volunteers must promote values of inclusion, diversity, and equity and advanced equitable opportunities for all. With requests for funds routinely in excess of available funding, the Advisory Council volunteers have a complex and difficult set of decisions.
Composition: This Advisory Council is comprised of a diverse group of volunteers from the community. Their commitment to serve is to improve the health and well-being of all residents.
Council Activities: The Advisory Council will meet regularly during the active investment process, which occurs annually from late August through late October. Activities include training sessions, reading written grant proposals, attending proposal presentations, participating in virtual Q&A Sessions, and multiple decision-making/recommendation discussions.
