Every fall, United Way has a campaign to raise funds for local nonprofit agency programs. Our donors give to United Way through payroll deductions, corporate gifts, or one-time gifts.
It’s our goal to make a lasting impact in the Chattahoochee Valley. United Way donors make reaching that goal possible.
2018 CAMPAIGN THEME
The ones most people turn their backs on. The ones nobody wants to talk about. The ones that seem impossible to solve. We go looking for them. We find every dollar we can to address them. But we are more than the fundraisers. We are the handraisers. The gamechangers. The stop talking, start doing, band together, and take on the impossible task crusaders. United, we tackle early grade literacy. United, we break the cycle of poverty and gain financial freedom. United, we confront obstacles to effective healthcare. United, we stand up for youth who have no support. United, we battle the threat of homelessness for those in the Chattahoochee Valley. No matter the obstacles. No matter the odds. We unite around our community’s biggest, most complex problems.
And we take action. We advocate to improve lives.
We advocate for those who need a voice and for those whose names we do not know.
United Way of the Chattahoochee Valley advocates for the Basic Needs, Income, Health, and Education of every person in our community. Because change doesn’t happen alone. Hope isn’t a one-man-band. We have one life. To live better. And together, we Win. Together, we Live United.
