Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We yearly strive to raise the most money possible in our community, impacting the lives of people serve by local non-profits from our grants.

Our strategy is multi-pronged. We provide opportunities for local businesses and their employees to give directly through payroll deduction. Individuals are contacted directly for an annual donation. We have 3 annual fundraising events: Dinner & Auction, Golf Tournament and Kick-Off Luncheon. In addition we have a highly successful door-to-door campaign in a local community. We also provide opportunities to give on-line and through Facebook.

We have a volunteer board that provides expertise as well as their influence with our local donors and they are always looking for new opportunities to share the United Fund Story and how they can get involved.

The 2020 Campaign reached our goal and we are are working toward our 2021 goals for the future.
