Who decides where the money United Way of Northeast Louisiana raises each year goes? Concerned, caring people like you make that decision, and YOU can be one of them by volunteering to serve on the Community Investment Committee!

Each year, United Way of Northeast Louisiana recruits bright, dedicated volunteers who care about our community to serve on our Community Investment Panels.  Panel Volunteers ensure that the funds raised are invested in programs that contribute to developing the building blocks for a good life, our four key focus areas: Education, Financial Stability, and Health, as well as Basic & Emergency Needs.

This volunteer experience represents an opportunity to learn about our community, build leadership skills and work in cooperation with others toward a meaningful goal.  In addition, this is a unique chance for volunteers to make decisions about how their gifts are invested in our community. For more about this enriching experience, download our Community Investment Committee Overview.
