What is the easiest way to contribute?

Payroll deduction is by far the most convenient method of contribution. A small amount is taken from your paycheck per payday, allowing you to make a small contribution each week that can make a big difference in the course of a year.


Why should I give to the United Way?

Charitable giving is a personal and voluntary decision and the United Way encourages you to do what is most comfortable to you. A gift to the United Way is an investment that benefits the entire community, not just one program, issue, or population.


Not every agency appeals to every donor, but all agencies have met the meticulous standards of our United Way and the programs we fund help to support working families.   If you like, you can designate to any one agency that fits your needs.


What if I don't want my money to go to a certain agency?

There are approximately 1,300 United Ways across the country that exist in their respective communities to build
partnerships and leverage resources to create plans for long lasting community change. Though United Ways share
a logo and have similar missions, each United Way is independently incorporated and is led by local staff and volunteers.
The work of each United Way is determined by its local community needs.


Are all United Ways the same?
