Volunteers support the Heart of Illinois United Way by coordinating workplace campaigns, serving in GENeration United and Youth United, serving on grant review panels, helping with labor events or overseeing marketing and finance.

Community Impact Fund Volunteers

Each year, approximately 75 local Community Impact Fund volunteers, with more than 500 years of combined experience, spend more than 5,000 hours determining grant funding for the local health and human care programs and initiatives funded by the Heart of Illinois United Way.
