ABOUT UNITED WAY OF HIGHWAY 55 ALLOCATION PROGRAM
The United Way of Highway 55 believes that all our neighbors deserve a chance to succeed and live a vibrant life here at home. For everyone to have a fair chance to succeed, we support these areas that build a good quality of life and a strong community – education, income, health, and essentials.
United Way prides itself on being a safe, effective outlet for donors to make a difference in their community. We raise funds from a variety of individuals and businesses, pooling donated resources, and organize fundraisers so we can make significant grants to nonprofit agencies in Coffee, Moore, and Warren Counties. We distribute funds strategically to our partner local nonprofits. Nonprofits submit applications and required documents, which our allocation committee reviews every year. Through this process, we identify how organizations in our community can work together to provide the most effective and efficient services. We allocate funds to incentivize collaboration and support effective services. By giving to UWHWY55, you are contributing to a strategic effort to make our communities stronger, while supporting many needed missions. This process is repeated yearly, to invite new nonprofits and previous applicants. United Way strives to protect donated dollars and strategically distributes to many missions in our community.
