Volunteer Advisory Teams

Volunteer Advisory Team (VAT) volunteers support United Way’s community investment process by evaluating program proposals, making funding recommendations and reviewing data to monitor program outcomes. VAT team members are a critical part of the competitive grant process that funds proposals for programs that support United Way’s focus areas of health, education, financial stability and essential services. VAT volunteers must live or work in Racine County and be available to attend virtual meetings during the February to May funding cycle, with occasional meetings and commitments between June and January. Meetings typically begin at 4 p.m. The total time commitment for each year is approximately 30 hours, and volunteers are asked to make a minimum commitment of two years.
