Events Coordinator Volunteer

United Way is looking for an events coordinator volunteer! We need someone, or multiple people, who are detail-oriented to work alongside our Community Relations Manager to plan our Over The Edge celebration event. Over The Edge is a unique peer-to-peer fundraising event where individuals raise $1,000 to rappel off of the top of Towers South on Southeast Missouri State University’s campus. This event is being held on May 20th, 2022.

We are seeking help for our celebration event on May 18th from 5-7:30 PM. This event is a celebration for our Edgers to give them the encouragement they need to rappel on Friday. We will use this opportunity to thank all of our Edgers for their fundraising, the donors for their contributions, sponsors for their investment, and volunteers for the hard work they are about to do Friday as well.

We are looking for someone or multiple people who are experienced in event planning to help us plan and execute this event for May 18th, 2022. We are well underway with planning and are in the process of contacting vendors, we are just looking for a little extra help!

Responsibilities may include:

  • Communicating with volunteer groups to acquire needed volunteers
  • Communicating with vendors such as catering, band, rentals, etc.
  • Communicating with UWSEMO staff for any additional needs

If you are interested, please fill out the form below!


Review Grant Applications

If you could help thousands of people in your area from the comfort of your home, would you?
Every 3 years, United Way of Southeast Missouri opens grant applications. In 2019, over 1 million dollars in funding was requested by local organizations. As much as we wish we could fund all of those wonderful programs, it’s just not possible for a small United Way located in rural Missouri. Luckily for us, United Way staff members don’t have to make funding decisions, we leave it up to our community and a committee of volunteers!
You can play a vital role in helping to determine which programs and agencies will receive UWSEMO funding by reviewing and scoring grant applications.
We’re asking each volunteer to review at least two applications that will be assigned to you. These are stored and scored online using a simple rubric we provide. Each application takes about 30 minutes and requires a computer and internet access. This is a helpful way to learn about needs in our community and the many organizations working together to address them.
