Our experience tells us the best way to help the most people is to focus on the underlying causes of the most serious problems. Here in our community, we’re focused on critical issues like:
  • helping individuals have access to healthcare

  • providing children and adults with education and life skills

  • ensuring basic needs and emergency services are available
It takes the whole community working together to reach our goals in these areas. So we bring people together from all across the community— government, business, faith groups, non profits, and concerned citizens. If it requires fundraising or getting people to work together, that’s what we do.

Your United Way contribution works to bring lasting change right here because that’s what matters.

Please Give & Make a Difference!

Last year, your gift to United Way touched the lives of 1 in 5 people in our community. Thanks to your support, seniors were able to remain independent, children received new clothes for school, and families received emergency assistance with food, medicine, and utilities.

United Way’s priorities reflect our community’s changing needs. Throughout the year, United Way is mobilizing trained volunteers to study those needs, and only after careful consideration, do they choose to invest resources where they will get measurable results.

United Way works diligently and responsibly to maximize our donors’ investments. By partnering with volunteers to assist in the annual campaign and encouraging collaboration among our community partners, United Way is able to ensure that your gift has a greater impact.

Nothing is more important to us than the trust and confidence of our donors. As the leading charitable institution in our community, representing their wishes is critical to our continued success. At United Way, we know that trust can never be assumed–it is earned.

Whether you donate your time or give through the annual campaign, your United Way contribution is an investment in our community.
