NORWICH – With the United Way nationally focused on improving income, education and health between 2010 and 2018, the Chenango United Way has released its 2010 End of Year Community Impact Report.
Every year, programs and organizations receiving United Way funding must submit a budget and outcome sheet showing how allocated funds were utilized the previous year, according to Chenango United Way Executive Director Elizabeth Monaco. A group of seven board volunteers then compares each individual agencies’ original proposal with its end of year results, using a 15-point scoring system.
In 2010, the majority of programs in Chenango County scored perfectly, said Monaco, with a small number receiving minor deductions.
“It’s always building on the previous year’s results,” said Monaco of the annual report. “Even if an agency is only a few points off, we try to address that for the next year. We use every opportunity to teach and help strengthen their reporting.”
