OUR COMMUNITY FUNDS
Community Impact Fund
Achieve the greatest impact in our community by supporting programs in the areas of education, financial wellness, and healthy communities. For every dollar invested, we secure more than $5 in local, state and federal grants, and volunteer support right here in our community.
Funds raised are distributed to partner agencies and go directly to helping local individuals and families in our community survive during and after an emergency.
With the goal of reaching a $25 million endowment by our centennial celebration, you can support United Way’s community impact through the next 100 years by ensuring that vital programs serving our community are sustained, operational needs are met, and our community is poised to grow and thrive with its changing needs.
