Community Investment Grant Panelists

Help us determine how YOUR United Way donation is invested!

United Way Emerald Coast (UWEC) is looking for community-minded volunteers interested in making measurable changes in peoples’ lives to become a Grant Panelist.

Every year UWEC invests in programs that measurably improve critical community needs through its Community Investment process. Grant Panelists assist UWEC by advising where their donor dollars should be invested. Each volunteer will personally review and score grant applications from local nonprofit agencies, sit in on agency presentations, and participate in group discussions to develop funding recommendations.

United Way Emerald Coast donors of any amount are invited to volunteer. If you are interested, and not yet a donor, there are two easy ways to give: text UWEMERALDCOAST to 41444 or visit 

We recruit volunteers in January and February. If interested in serving, please complete the form below and we will contact you when recruitment opens.
