United Way volunteers in Tate, MS will meet to discuss funding for local nonprofits

allocations volunteers

United Way allocations volunteers make the challenging decisions about where donated funds will be used to improve lives and impact communities.

The volunteer allocations team in Tate County, MS is preparing to meet to make the challenging decisions about where United Way support can be used to impact lives and strengthen Tate County.

Our United Way team in Tate County will discuss the distribution of funds to partner agencies beginning May 23. Last year, the Tate team directed 7% to programs helping children and youth succeed, 50% to efforts strengthening families and neighborhoods, and 43% to work that improves health for adults and seniors.

The volunteers live in Tate, MS and the funds they distribute were given to United Way by people who live in the county.
