WE DO IT FOR YOU.
WE DO IT WITH YOU.
HOW WE DO IT
We are a Non-profit that supports Non-profits
Here is how it works:
You donate to the United Way of Stephens County.
We carefully vet non-profits and allocate funds.
These non-profits provide services to people in need.
Generous people donate money.
Individuals donate directly to United Way and volunteers help raise money through our unique giving campaigns. The money goes directly into our Community Impact Fund. Stephens County is our home. We are all responsible for making it a better place to live.
Our committee meets & reviews.
Dozens of non-profit programs approach us with ideas for how they can help move the needle on poverty. Each year, our Community Allocation panel, made up of 25 volunteers, vets these programs. Our Community Impact Fund gets distributed to the combination of programs determined to best meet the needs of Stephens County residents. Currently, we fund over 20 programs.
The money is sent out to non-profits.
The money is distributed to hardworking non-profits that provide services to the community. Our funded programs are held accountable for the work they do. They provide outcomes on their results to us annually.
Throughout the year, we convene our partners, along with the public sector and anyone else interested in our issue. We look for new ways to solve old problems. We also strive to be more efficient, collaborative and inventive.
Those in need get services.
We all live better. Every year, tens of thousands of individuals and families in Stephens County receive support from the non-profit agencies we fund.
