How will VCF allocate undesignated donations?

We do hope that donors will designate areas of interest. We intend to collect information about undesignated donations by zip code. If there are significant contributions from any specific areas other than the Upper Valley we may attempt to allocate funds to charities or service organizations in that area. We might try to communicate with the donors from that area to seek their advice. We currently expect to first allocate undesignated campaign funds to critical life services such as food and meals programs, shelter and related services such as heating and utility assistance, and programs benefiting children and the elderly. We assure you that we will do the best we can. We have a diverse board of directors who bring diverse opinions to the allocation processes.
