We go looking for problems.
Problems experienced by individuals, families and neighborhoods are rarely one-dimensional. Complex problems require complex solutions which frequently involve multiple partners providing program support to create lasting change.
For more than 90 years, United Way has been the organization shepherding this kind of progress.
Donors have the confidence that their human service dollars go the furthest to do the most good, supporting many programs through one effort. Local volunteers use their knowledge of community problems to distribute energy where the needs are greatest.
Want to make a bigger difference with your dollars?
United Way holds agencies accountable for the programs they run, only funding programs with good results. That’s why we were rated a four-star charity through Charity Navigator’s rigorous framework.
Invest in your community.
We need your help to change low graduation rates, persistent poverty, and a lack of affordable healthcare and housing. Rally your office together to help us tackle the toughest issues in the Midlands.
