United Way of Thunder Bay - Community Impact - Your Gift At Work - Responsible Allocations Process

Responsible Allocations Process

The United Way of Thunder Bay operates on a basis of sound financial practices. We adhere to a standard for accounting known as TAFR (Transparency & Accountability in Financial Reporting) set by the United Way of Canada.

As part of this practice, we allocate funding to charitable organizations based on the advice of an independent Allocations Committee. Comprised of community volunteers, the Allocations Committee is responsible for the analysis of funding applications, awarding of funding and program follow up. The committee is divided into seven panels of volunteers who meet with applicants' staff, board members and clients before making final decisions as to funding. This team of 30 community volunteers spends over 1,000 hours reviewing local agencies’ annual funding applications to determine the best use of donor dollars to support these vital programs and make change start here.

United Way of Thunder Bay is leading the way to a better community by improving the quality of life for all local people. By collaborating with community partners, we are leading the way to addressing social issues in our community and investing in three critical areas: Poverty, Kids and Strong Communities. Donations to the United Way are strategically invested across Thunder Bay to many vital programs and initiatives in these areas, creating a social safety net that works to achieve lasting change for our neighbours, families and friends.
