The Community Investment Grant is open to our existing Partner Agencies, as well as nonprofit organizations providing services and resources to children ages 0-4. Applications will be reviewed by allocation panels of community volunteers. The leadership of the Community Investment Committee of Bartlesville Regional United Way and lead panel chairs will make funding recommendations. Funded programs will receive one calendar year of funding based on the amount available from the Community Investment process and satisfactory program performance.

Volunteers needed to join the Community Investment Committee!

The Bartlesville Regional United Way is in need of volunteers for the Community Investment Committee (CIC). Volunteers who serve on the CIC are vital to the growth and sustainability of impact that our Partner Agencies are making through the programs we fund. Through the responsibility of allocating the funds raised through United Way to our partner agencies wisely, fairly, and effectively, our volunteers have the power to shape the very fabric of our community.

You can expect meetings to last approximately one hour, with all meetings being virtual. Committee members’ responsibilities include the following:

  • Attend one (1) virtual CIC training/orientation in March
  • Attend between 3-4 virtual committee meetings, including a virtual agency tour and interview
  • Review agency applications assigned to your committee to learn the specifics related to the programs, services, mission, administration, budget, facilities, and community impact
  • Ask any questions that may be unclear, vote on issues presented, listen and voice your opinions to other committee members
  • Fill out an evaluation response to the agency’s application upon final review
  • Recommend program funding

There will be 14 committees, and each committee will be made up of 5-7 individuals, including a chairperson to serve as a facilitator. We will need between 80-90 volunteers for this year’s CIC process.
