Benefits of Giving
Efficiency. United Way effectively leverages private donations in order to finance innovative programs and initiatives that profoundly affect communities. Your investment supports dozens of effective programs and initiatives that must show measurable outcomes to receive funding.
Expertise. Our research identifies the most pressing needs and most effective solutions in our focus areas of Education, Financial Stability, and Health, and draws on the resources of United Way Worldwide, the largest private non-profit in the world.
Local focus. Your support helps people throughout the Itasca Area, and statewide through programs like First Call / United Way 2-1-1. Local volunteers, supported by United Way staff, help determine where your investment can do the most good.
Accountability. The investment of your hard-earned dollars is overseen by a volunteer board that ensures the strictest accountability, fiscal responsibility, and careful use of your donation.
Connection. Through United Way, your investment is connected to businesses, volunteers, community leaders, people, and organizations — and that multiplies its impact. Together, we can accomplish more than any single person, group, or organization.
Ease in giving. United Way makes it easy for you to help the community. Participating in a workplace campaign makes giving a convenient part of your life.
Results. Your gift makes a long-term impact on our community. United Way goes beyond quick fixes to create measurable change that lasts.
