BEND, Ore. -

The United Way of Deschutes County announced Tuesday a funding plan for 2014-15 that invests $1,025,918 in a range of essential community services provided by local non-profit agencies. 

The total fund disposition package includes $619,516 in allocations and donor designations to twenty-seven local social service agencies that partner with United Way of Deschutes County, $103.000 in direct services, and $303,402 in contributions earmarked by donors to a host of other agencies.

Focusing on four key areas of community need the Community Impact Committee directed more than $210,000 to United Way partner agencies that provide food, shelter and other basic need services; approximately $167,000 will go to programs that address issues of child and family violence.  More than $205,000 will go to programs for healthy development of children and youth.  

Executive Director Ken Wilhelm said, “Our volunteers had to make some difficult decisions this year.  Many of our agency partners have struggled to make ends meet over the last several years because of the weak economy and a strong demand for services.  The recovery hasn’t shown up for many of them yet and we just didn’t have enough money to fund all the worthy requests .“
