2018-19 Community Campaign
The United Way Board of Trustees has a set bold goal to raise $1,000,000 during the 2018-19 Community Campaign to break the cycle of generational poverty through educational programs that give children the skills to succeed and help adults achieve long-term financial stability so they can support themselves and their families.
Nearly all of our internal operating expenses are covered by corporate gifts, foundation grants and support from our Signature Partners. As a result, each individual contribution made through United Way's Community Investment Fund can be invested directly back into the community through programs and services offered by local nonprofit organizations.
The Community Investment Fund is the most powerful way to invest your contribution. Each year, we review program grant requests from local nonprofit organizations to determine how to most effectively invest your contribution to make a difference right in your community.
You may contribute directly to United Way securely with a credit or debit card here.
