United Way is an effective way to give to an array of human service organizations in our community. This year, United Way will support 32 programs at 27 local nonprofits that provide meals to seniors, books and mentors to children and a safe place for abused women and neglected children to stay.
Once a year, United Way of Cascade County turns to our community and asks for your support. We're excited to say that for the sixth consecutive year, the campaign broke a record. Over the last five years, the campaign has increased 19 percent and over the past 10 years, it's grown an amazing 55 percent.
For every dollar raised in Cascade County 99 cents stays in Cascade County. Local volunteers decide where donations go and a local board of directors determines our direction.
The United Way campaign gives people the flexibility to direct their donations to specific nonprofits that are close to their hearts or build the community as a whole by giving to United Way. Many businesses make it even easier for employees to give by offering to deduct money out of each paycheck. United Way’s campaign is built on often small contributions from many donors.
We have a roster of nonprofit leaders and volunteers ready to speak to businesses or organizations about the impact your donations to United Way have on local nonprofits and the community as a whole. You can arrange your speaking engagement by contacting us and we’ll be happy to coordinate around your schedule.
Each year, local companies loan employees to United Way once a week for 11 weeks. The loaned executives are one way we can keep our staff small and still provide our business partners with the resources they need. Whether its helping set up for a silent auction, chalk drawing, dropping off materials and signs, our loaned executives are looking for ways to help you and your business run effective campaigns. Contact our loaned executives between Sept. 9 and Nov. 22 by calling 727-3400.
