Butler County United Way thrives on community members who believe in what we're doing. Below are some of the volunteer teams that drive our organization and help us accomplish our goals.

Impact Committees

Purpose: To identify and support strategies and solutions that move us toward a desired vision for our community as charged by the Butler County United Way Board of Trustees. Each Impact Committee focuses on research, the experiences of other communities, best practices, and other tolls to identify "what works" in addressing the root causes of the issue identified by the Board of Trustees.
