Fond du Lac Area United Way
Announces Program Allocations
One week after announcing the accomplishment of its $740,000 campaign goal, the Fond du Lac Area United Way has completed the process of allocating $574,500 in program funding.
“Each year, United Way funding helps local agencies better serve the needs of Fond du Lac residents across 13 Fond du Lac communities,” said Tina Potter, United Way executive director in Fond du Lac.
Determining which programs will be funded and how many dollars will be allocated to each of those programs is led by United Way’s board of directors, with the support of an experienced team of grant reviewers.
“All programs funded support United Way’s commitment to build supportive, healthy and educated communities,” said Andy Winget, president of the United Way’s board of directors.
