Chatham County Seeks Volunteers To Review Non-Profit Funding Requests

Pittsboro, NC - Each year, Chatham County receives funding requests from several non-profit agencies that meet a wide range of needs across the county. Next year, the county will provide approximately $320,000 in nonprofit funding and needs residents’ help in determining how to best allocate these funds.

The county seeks resident volunteers to help evaluate nonprofits’ requests and to make funding recommendations to the Board of Commissioners and the County Manager.

The County needs residents to serve on one of the following panels, but you can volunteer to serve on both:

o Certification Panel: Volunteers serving on the Certification Panel will review financial and operational information to ensure that applicants meet county requirements. Residents with expertise in finance are strongly encouraged to apply for the Certification Panel. Volunteers must be available to meet during March 19-23, 2007 during normal business hours.

o Funding Review Panels: Volunteers serving on one of several Funding Review Panels will review funding applications and hear 30-minute presentations from five to seven agencies. These volunteers will also be encouraged to visit each agency prior to the presentations. No particular experience is needed for funding review panels; however, some experience with program evaluation would be helpful. Volunteers must be available to meet during April 23-27, 2007 during normal business hours.

Volunteers must be residents of Chatham County. Employees of non-profit agencies that apply for county funds are not eligible to serve, but board members and volunteers of non-profit agencies that apply for county funds may serve on a panel that does not review funding for their non-profit agency or any related agency.

Interested volunteers must apply by February 7, 2007. Applications are online at, by calling 919.545.8359, or by e-mailing For additional information, contact Renee Paschal at 919.542.8200 or
