However, the money raised here stays here.

The United Way allocations committee, comprised of local volunteers, review the annual requests by the partner agencies and make the funding recommendations, ensuring every penny is spent wisely.  They carefully distribute the funds that you entrust to them according to the needs in the community. This process ensures your contribution has a maximum impact on your community.   These recommendations are given to the United Way Board of Trustees for final approval. 

They also are charged with oversight and monitoring funds distributed by United Way to funded programs.

If you chose, you can specify exactly where your contribution will go. The money you donate can go to precisely the organizations, issues and local needs you chose.  Remember, United Way of Pueblo County is an independent, local organization.
