Another year of a successful campaign and community investment process has come to a close. Without the support from our community of individuals, organizations, and businesses in Sheboygan County, this success would not be possible. Within the United Way of Sheboygan County (UWSC), lots of credit goes to the volunteer members of the Community Action Team and Board of Directors that work diligently to assure donor dollars are invested wisely and with purpose.
The Community Action Team (CAT), made up of dedicated volunteer members from across Sheboygan County, scored each program application on criteria such as outcome measurement, the logic model program plan and collaboration with other agencies.
The CAT continues to focus on results-based accountability to assure each donor dollar is making a community impact. This focus gives UWSC the ability to communicate tangible, meaningful results that reflect our community. It also ensures more accountability to the community and better overall performance – more examples of a greater return on investment.
We thank and congratulate the Partner Agencies for their diligence and creativity in working to make our community a better place to live, work, and thrive. Here is the list of our Partner Agencies and the programs in which United Way has invested for the 2018-2019 fiscal year:
