Fund Distribution

Partnering for a Stronger Community

Our Fund Distribution teams help distribute United Way Fund dollars to maximize the impact on the community. United Way of Lincoln and Lancaster County targets three strategic focus areas: Education, Income and Health.

Within these three strategic focus areas, Fund Distribution has identified the following funding strategies:


  • Expanded Learning: Beyond the classroom
  • Educational Supports
  • Youth Development


  • Shelter
  • Food
  • Workforce Development
  • Financial Capability


  • Youth Behavioral Health
  • Victim Safety
  • Emergency Response

Agencies and programs applying for funds are evaluated with consideration for these strategies. A “citizen review” process brings together community volunteers to determine funding recommendations.
