A rigorous fund allocation process

Since 2016, two committees have overseen fund allocation. First, the Financial Verification Committee brings in recommendations after having studied the financial statements of the partner agencies and checking the relative share of Centraide R-Y’s funding for the entirety of their operations.

Afterwards, the Allocations and Agency Relations Committee (AARC), composed of volunteers, studies the funding requests from partner agencies. Then, AARC volunteers meet with the agencies to confirm their needs. Finally, they present recommendations to the Board of Directors regarding Centraide’s annual allocations to agencies.
