Local Partner Agencies

COMMUNITY INVESTMENT PROCESS

The Budget and Allocations process is the cornerstone of United Way’s local impact. The framework for this process was established to assist donors in making sound giving decisions and to foster public confidence in United Way and its partner agencies. It ensures fiscal and program accountability for all agencies receiving United Way funds, while meeting the health and human service needs of our community. In the process, volunteers evaluate each agency’s effectiveness at providing services, review the need for those services in the region, and analyze the impact of United Way funding in meeting those needs. Agency partner programs are closely evaluated by United Way and its volunteers to ensure they are healthy, maintaining proper management and producing measurable outcomes.

Partner agency programs approved for funding have provided evidence and documentation that they meet United Way of the Greater Clarksville Region’s standards for:

  • Organizational governance,
  • Effectiveness of operations,
  • Fiscal responsibility, and
  • Truthfulness of their representations.

Each year, Full Partner Agency Programs may apply submit applications for funding during this process.  The Allocation review process begins in January and extends through May when funding recommendations are approved by the United Way of the Greater Clarksville Region Board of Directors.  Approved agency programs receive funding payments monthly on a July – June annual cycle.
