The most powerful gift is to change a life.
When you give, you have a choice to donate directly to a non-profit or to the United Way Impact Fund. The United Way Impact fund was created to help people and only people. United Way, in collaboration with local corporate and community leaders, researches and uses data to identify the most pressing issues people are facing. We work hard to fill the gaps where no services currently exist. Then we work with non-profit partners to build solutions that touch individuals and improve lives. The Impact Fund has four focus areas:
- Help children succeed in school and life
- Prevent hunger and homelessness for financially struggling families
- Help people with disabilities live with greater independence
- Help seniors living independently avoid hardships and hunger
We are reimagining a future where more people live to their fullest potential. We are driving results not just for today, but for tomorrow. All of our programs focus on preventative solutions for lasting change that will lift up a life, a community, and ultimately our region.
We do the due diligence for you.
United Way invests Impact Fund dollars through a competitive selection process guided by teams of community leaders and volunteers. Local human service agencies provide proposals for meeting those needs. Through a rigorous review process the best, most innovative and collaborative programs are selected for funding, ensuring that your dollars make a real difference in the lives of people.
