Annual Report/Financial Information

Financial Information

Meeting the most critical human needs requires collective action. So, United Way of Rockbridge brings together citizens, community leaders, business, the faith community, government, non-profit organizations and other institutions to support our community. Through United Way of Rockbridge, your gift supports local agencies and programs that would not otherwise exist. 

United Way of Rockbridge engages community reviewers to identify community needs. In order to recommend a funding amount, each year our Community reviewers visit local agencies, review their proposed programs, inspect their financial information, and determine their impact in the community . Upon recommendation by the reviewer to the Allocations Committee, the UWR Board then reviews and approves the decisions. The Executive Director leads fundraising efforts and distributes the funds under the oversight of the Board. Learn more about the current Board members here and learn more about how to become a community reviewer here.
