Community Solution Panel

Community Solution Panel Volunteer Opportunity

Approximate time commitment–20 hours from April through May

Each year, grant applications are received from regional nonprofits seeking funding from UWIFBC'S Community Fund. This fund is from area employee donations through our Workplace Giving Campaigns. Community Solution Panel volunteers (CSPV) from our seven-county service region help the United Way Board of Directors direct the funding to nonprofit organizations that align with our impact areas of:

  • Food insecurity for children and seniors.
  • Access to mental health and health resources and services.
  • Affordable housing, living wage.
  • Early education, equity-based programs.

Duties Include:

  • Commit to 15–20 hours of time between April and June.
  • Reviewing and scoring grant applications.
  • Understand and apply UWIFBC's mission and goals while making funding decisions.
  • Participate in CSPV training - one hour on April 11th.
  • Participate and contribute to panel emails, discussions, and meetings.
  • Participate in nonprofit agency site visits and interviews.
  • Contribute to discussions and final funding recommendations.

Being part of the CSPV is a great opportunity to better understand the work that our 47 nonprofit community partners are making creating lasting changes for children, families and seniors in eastern Idaho.
