To become a United Way partner agency, a local 501C(3) organization must demonstrate how it provides vital health or social services to the people of Pullman and Whitman County. Specific funding focus areas of need are a priority for the community. Perspective organizations who meet specific focused funding area of need determined by the board of directors are invited by the board of directors to participate in the allocation process.
Each year, a voluntary committee from United Way of Pullman evaluates the agency’s performance over the past year as a part of the allocation process. Agencies are invited to make a presentation of their plans and financial needs for the year ahead to the Allocation Committee.
Based on each agencies results, plans for the coming year and funding requests, the committee prepares a recommendation to the full United Way of Pullman Board, which makes the final funding decisions.
