Allocation Partner Agencies
United Way of Central Alabama has the privilege of working with 71 nonprofit agencies that are making a positive impact in our five county Central Alabama region. Each year our Allocations Partners are allocated a portion of funds donated by the community through the annual campaign.
Allocation Partners participate in an annual allocations process which includes an application and visit from a Visiting Allocations Team. Below is a list of Allocation Partners receiving funding from the 2019 campaign for the 2020 calendar year.
Please find below a link to the UWCA Partner Agency Handbook. This handbook is designed to provide a brief overview of each of UWCA’s departments – especially as they relate to the allocations process and agency relationships. It also includes some policies and guidelines for UWCA partner agencies. This handbook is not intended to be a thorough compilation or summary of UWCA’s departments, programs or staff members. For more information, please contact Sara Newell or Randy Betsch with the Community Impact department. UWCA Partner Agency Handbook
