“Our Community Investment Process ensures the best outcomes of our donor dollars. The rigor our trained community volunteers apply to the grant selections enables the GUW to do all the work so you don’t have to, positively impacting thousands of Greenwich residents’ lives each year,” said David Rabin, CEO of Greenwich United Way.

Greenwich United Way Community Investment grants are awarded to local organizations based on submission of grant applications and a rigorous review process by dozens of community volunteers. Greenwich United Way volunteers on the Community Investment Process (CIP) committee review grant applications from human services agencies that serve Greenwich residents and visit program sites. Following intensive evaluation of the financials, applications and other data, trained volunteers recommend funding to the Greenwich United Way Board of Directors. The Community Investment Process is guided by the research of local needs as published in Greenwich United Way Needs Assessment Report and Executive Summary.
