COMMUNITY IMPACT

United Way of the Piedmont is committed to improving lives and delivering meaningful results. We do this by uniting donors, volunteers, corporate partners, and non-profit organizations around solutions to community issues. YOU can help by giving to United Way, by advocating for a particular issue that is important to you, or by volunteering your time.

Our strategies for Community Impact involve:

Helping People in Need Right Now…investing time, money and advocacy in programs and services that are making a measurable difference in lives of individuals.

Preventing Future Needs…investing resources in initiatives that will improve targeted community conditions and quality of life for all.

This work is driven by our 2015-2025 Community Impact Agenda.
