United Way of El Dorado

Funded Organizations

Through the generosity of both individuals and corporate donors the United Way of El Dorado raises funds each Fall for the upcoming year. Each spring, the Allocation Committee carefully considers community needs through its Allocation Hearings. Agencies requesting funds must submit proposals documenting needs and services, as well as providing details of proposed projects toward which funds will be applied. Funds are then distributed to partnering agencies that serve and build our community.
