FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW IS UNITED WAY DIFFERENT FROM OTHER NONPROFIT ORGANIZATIONS?
No other single organization meets the broad range of needs addressed by United Way. United Way goes beyond fundraising by researching the needs of the community and bringing the right resources and people together to solve tough local issues. It funds programs that are meeting people’s needs today, and we are working toward innovative solutions for lasting change.
WHY GIVE TO UNITED WAY?
You make a difference. You are making an investment that benefits the entire community, not just one program, issue, or population, and this leads to a stronger, more sustainable place to live and work. It is a smart investment. United Way provides expert management of donor investments and brings the right people, ideas, and resources together to solve the most pressing needs of our community and finds innovative solutions for lasting change.
United Way leverages your contribution by combining it with others and strategically investing in results-driven programs and initiatives to maximize the impact we have in the community. It is easy and convenient. With online pledging, payroll deduction, and donor designations it is easy to give back in a way that matters to you. Spreading your giving throughout the year makes it easier to increase your giving while still staying within your budget.
WHAT IF I DON’T THINK I CAN AFFORD TO GIVE?
By using United Way’s payroll deduction plan, you can invest a small amount each pay period, and see it add up to a significant gift by year’s end. Your investment combined with thousands of others will have a real, measurable impact in the community.
