Ways to Invest

Community Care Fund - Making a contribution towards our Community Care Fund is the BEST way to do the MOST good with a single contribution. United Way tracks the results of donations to the Community Care Fund so donors are assured of accountability and results, measured in changed lives and a healthier community. In 2014-15, the Community Care Fund and Community Investment Partnership was able to support 34 local nonprofits in the community.

Right from the Start - Making a contribution to Right from the Start supports early learning and works to ensure that each child has the skills and tools they need to succeed by the time they reach Kindergarten.

Women United - By giving an annual contribution of $250 or $1,000 to Women United, you help women and children acquire the life-long skills needed to support themselves and their families. Your contribution provides membership opportunities to support the WLC through ways of grantmaking, fundraising and outreach to the community.

Endowment Fund - Supporting United Way's Endowment Fund provides long-term sustainable funding to meet the needs of our community’s children, youth, families and seniors.
