Rewarding Volunteer Opportunity: Be a part of our Grant Allocation Process this Spring!

Acton-Boxborough United Way works to create a community where everyone belongs and thrives. This means addressing immediate needs while breaking long-term cycles of exclusion. To do this we design and lead collaborative efforts, advance initiatives within and across sectors, and award targeted grants to local nonprofits that serve our community. 

For our 2022-2023 Community Impact Grants, ABUW will award funding to organizations that equitably, effectively, and sustainably drive progress on our Thrive2024 Impact Focus Areas: Mental Health, Early Childhood Success, Equity & Racial Justice, Financial Stability, and Crisis Preparedness.

Community volunteers are an essential part of this process. Be part of the team that reviews applications, participates in interviews, and makes recommendations. Hear directly from incredible local agencies doing important work -- and help decide how ABUW allocates our Community Impact Grants to sustain and bring new services to Acton and Boxborough! Let your voice be heard. A truly rewarding volunteer opportunity!

No experience necessary. Orientation will be on Thursday, March 24th at 7PM.
