• Ensuring strong support
Our plan: We are want to raise $25,000 on BIG Day of Giving to end poverty starting in schools.
Our hope: For more kids in our region to graduate from high school ready for success in college and beyond.
Your role: By making a donation on May 4 you’re contributing to the change you want to see in your community and the world.
Introducing the Square One Project
Find out what it is and how you can join us in changing our region.
We’ve kicked off our most ambitious project in our 90-year-history – a new approach to ending poverty and equipping schools with the resources to be a ground-level force for children’s success.
United Way would not exist without the tremendous support of our volunteers. From our board of directors and action group members to Experience Corps reading tutors and AmeriCorps VISTAS, volunteers provide a strong support system for children and families through United Way’s Square One Project.
