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 two important areas with funding: children and those in crisis.

Within these two impact areas, Fund Distribution has identified eight funding strategies:

  • Educational supports
  • Youth Development
  • Expanded Learning
  • Youth Behavioral Health
  • Hunger/Food
  • Victim Safety
  • Emergency Response
  • Shelter

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