OUR WORK




WHAT's THE POINT?

A gift through United Way is about making your dollars more than an allocation - It's about creating lasting change in West Tennessee.  We support only efforts that target the underlying causes of issues that affect our communities.

Our partner agencies are working every day to make life better for the people they serve.  We know that our communities will continue to have needs.  United Way works to move the needle for our friends and neighbors in need. Together, we're accomplishing things none of us could do alone.

 

 


 

HOW IT WORKS


Each year, our resource directors and advisory boards work hard to raise funds during the annual campaign.  Each dollar raised in a county is invested in that county.  Small businesses, manufacturing plants, retail stores, professional offices, hospitals (among many others) participate in the Annual Campaign.

Most donors give to United Way through Payroll Deduction.  Payroll deduction empowers each donor to make a small gift each pay period.  That small gift, when coupled with the small gifts of every other employee in the company, makes a big difference.

Once money is raised, local nonprofits apply for United Way assistance to make the programs of their dreams a reality in our communities.  We call this process Community Impact - Local volunteers evaluate these applications, visit with our partner agencies, and decide which agencies are funded and at what amount.
