United Way of Okaloosa-Walton Counties has approved the allocation of funds from the 2015 Campaign to be disbursed to the 40 United Way Partner Agencies.

Allocating funds to the Partner Agencies’ programs is a very involved process.  Many trained volunteers from within our community serve on the Fund Distribution Committee which focuses on three key areas: Children & Education, Financial Stability & Disaster Preparedness and Health & Prevention. Volunteers who serve on the United Way Fund Distribution Committee are caring individuals who annually evaluate the community problems and direct your dollars given to the Community Care Fund to the area of service that will make the greatest impact.
