All requests for funding go through a strict review process to ensure that they address the greatest needs in our community and show positive results in people’s lives. Volunteers scour an agency’s lengthy application, then interview a representative to understand the agency’s programs and funding request more fully.

This rigorous process demonstrates our dedication to maximize charitable dollars for the greatest impact on the quality of life on the Eastern Shore. United Way of Virginia’s Eastern Shore is committed to accountability, strong leadership, and measurable results, making the United Way an excellent investment in our community.

“I thank each of you for making a positive difference in the lives of our fellow Eastern Shore citizens; as Winston Churchill once stated:
‘You make a living by what you get, you make a life by what you give.”
