United Way is the opportunity for donors to 'unite' under one umbrella to change the community and improve lives. It also brings together volunteers, health and human service agencies, government officials and other leaders in the community to evaluate and respond to the immediate needs in West Tennessee.
Corporations, employees, individuals and foundations pave the way by contributing money to United Way. United Way maximizes individual donations by combining them with thousands of other contributions and investing in programs that will have the greatest impact. Over 85 cents of every dollar given goes directly into community programs.
