Personal Campaigns

If your office does not run a workplace campaign but you still want to be part of the movement, there are plenty of ways you can contribute. From selecting United Way as your charity of choice for wedding gifts or raising funds with friends through social media, your contribution is working hard to benefit the greatest number of people in need in our community by funding:
  • Initiatives that help teens and young adults succeed, as well as reduce risk factors for children
  • Programs that strengthen families by promoting financial stability
  • Efforts to ensure the safety and well-being of vulnerable seniors and people with disabilities
  • Connections for thousands of people with the resources they need via the 2-1-1 Information and Assistance Helpline
A charitable planned gift is the result of careful and thoughtful planning for the distribution of one's assets to charitable organizations. These gifts are commonly made from assets rather than from income and often involve a planning process utilizing wills and other estate planning documents. A good planned gift can afford the donor increased income and important tax benefits
Whether this is your first time donating or you have been a life-long supporter of United Way, becoming part of the change in our community by inspiring hope for a better tomorrow is safe, secure and easy. Click here to donate now.
