We are actively invested in our community. Since 1979, the United Way of Alexander County has been funding health and human services in our community. United Way campaign dollars support a network of local agencies, addressing community problems 365 days a year.

The United Way of Alexander County is a grassroots effort ro raise funds for 10 nonprofit organizations serving Alexander County residents and visitors. A single contribution to the United Way campaign supports the work of all these groups. In addition to single contributions, the United Way works with employers to offer payroll deductions for employees. The funds raised by the United Way campaign allows the member agencies to spend more time serving the community and less time fund raising.

Decades of successful campaigns are a testament to the great work of member agencies as well as the dedication of our volunteers and contributors. Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the success of the United Way of Alexander County.

The United Way system includes more than 1,300 community-based United Way organizations. Each is independent and governed by local volunteers.

Our experience tells us that the best way to help the most people is to focus on the root causes of a community's most serious problems. It takes the whole community--working together--to pull it off.

So we bring together people from all across the community--people from government, business, faith groups, nonprofits, the labor movement, and ordinary citizens--to tackle the issues that matter most. If it requires fundraising, going to Town Hall, or just getting people to work together, that's what we do.

United Way is focused on the results: the lives we change and the communities we shape. We know that's what matters to you.

Our Mission: To increase the organized capacity of people to care for one another.

Our Purpose: To stimulate interest and participation in and to promote the adequate financing of united civic effort in behalf of essential local, state, national, and international social efforts and services.

To promote a better distribution of health, welfare, charitable, recreational, and character building services throughout the Alexander County area in relationships to existing needs and problems.

To promote the proper development and support of all accepted public and private agencies dealing with social problems.

To assure effective and economical fund-raising campaigns, intelligent, and equitable distribution of funds, and the conservation of the time and energies of community volunteers.

To organize and operate a United Way and to conduct an annual fund-raising campaign through which approved local, state and national health, welfare, charitable, recreational, and character-building activities and services may jointly appeal for voluntary contributions.

Our Vision: We will build a stronger America by mobilizing our communities to improve people's lives.
