"I believe that the United Way has developed a thoughtful approach for best investments of community dollars that combines appropriate due diligence with the flexibility needed to address evolving community needs. I wanted to volunteer for United Way as a board member because I have worked on the grantseeking side of the table for over twenty years and wanted to put my knowledge and skills to use in the Community Investment process."
"This year I am excited about continuing to grow community investment, building a new strategic plan, supporting new staff leadership."
"I would tell anyone out there considering donating to United Way that your gift supports a well-crafted strategy for investing dollars where they will have real impact in real time for real people. You are joining a collective philanthropic circle whose combined giving has the power to make real social change happen in Hampshire County beyond/in addition to what each of us does as individuals."
