HOW IT WORKS
Each year, our resource directors and advisory boards work hard to raise funds during the annual campaign. Each dollar raised in a county is invested in that county. Small businesses, manufacturing plants, retail stores, professional offices, hospitals (among many others) participate in the Annual Campaign.
Most donors give to United Way through Payroll Deduction. Payroll deduction empowers each donor to make a small gift each pay period. That small gift, when coupled with the small gifts of every other employee in the company, makes a big difference.
Once money is raised, local nonprofits apply for United Way assistance to make the programs of their dreams a reality in our communities. We call this process Community Impact - Local volunteers evaluate these applications, visit with our partner agencies, and decide which agencies are funded and at what amount.
