Valley Programs Receive $40,000 Boost


Valley United Way's Board of Directors recently approved close to $40,000 in Special Needs grants for 12 needs of Valley agencies. The allocated funds are earmarked for special needs and programs not normally covered by an agency's regular budget and the funds come from funds designated by donors for particular areas of need. These funds are in addition to the funds awarded through the annual allocations process.

Jack Walsh, President & C.O.O. at Valley United Way noted that grants made through the Special Needs process have now amounted to $367,000 since the program first started. He said that the grants have been very helpful for agencies in dealing with special situations and opportunities that arise during the course of the year. "This program is a nice supplement to the regular allocation process that meets both the special interests of donors and unique situations facing agencies during the course of a year," he said. He also thanked the Allocations Committee for their work in reviewing the requests and making recommendations to the Board of Directors.
