United Way Community Fund Grants
In 2018 United Way embarked on a robust, thorough and inclusive process to guide our investment strategy beginning in 2020. United Way engaged the Center for Governmental Research (CGR) to lend their expertise, conducted a community needs survey and have started what will be conversations with hundreds of community members, subject matter experts, service providers, those needing services and other stakeholders to gain insight into Rochester’s most daunting human service issues. This input will inform the focus of our funding starting in 2020.
