Frequently Asked Questions for Reviewers

What is a grant review panel?

A grant review panel reads and reviews grant applications, then rates them according to an established review rubric. Mile High United Way invites community members to review up to 10 grant applications during the month of March, discuss them at a meeting early April, and make recommendations to our board. The board makes the final decision on which organizations will receive funding.

What is expected of a grant review panelist?

·         Attend one 1-hour, virtual reviewer training.

·         Have an interest in helping Mile High United Way make strategic investments in strong organizations working to address access to basic needs for individuals and families.

·         Be able to read up to 10 grant applications. (Each application takes approximately an hour to read and score)

·         Attend one 90-minute review panel meeting in April and participate in discussions related to the applications that were read.

Why is there a required training?

·         As a best practice, we would like for our reviewers to meet each other prior to the review panel meeting.

·         We have much to share about the process and we have found that learning together is the most-effective way for all reviewers be on the same page.


Learn more about Mile High United Way's Strategic Investment Grants below. 

We know that our community’s challenges are bigger than any one organization can solve. By focusing on the under-resourced communities, and building partnerships with nonprofits, businesses, government agencies, and policymakers, we can work faster and better to find solutions that contribute to a community of healthy, well-educated, and financially stable individuals and families. The goal of this Strategic Investment Grant opportunity is to focus investments on outstanding organizations whose work aligns with our overarching strategy to ensure vital emergency and basic needs are met, including access to food, shelter, and childcare. The Strategic Investment Grants are awarded through a competitive and community-driven process. As a Mile High United Way stakeholder, we invite you to participate. 

Strategic Investment Grant for Emergency and Basic Needs:
Basic needs services are vital to individuals experiencing chronic conditions, and for individuals and families who have experienced a temporary setback or who face emergency situations. When individuals are unable to meet their immediate needs, it becomes more difficult to focus on long-term goals such as employment, housing, or education. To be considered for funding in our Emergency and Basic Needs grant category, organizations must provide those facing economic hardship with at least one of the following services:  access to food, access to shelter, childcare, legal services, rental and/or utility assistance, state identification assistance, tax preparation, and transportation assistance.
