Invest in Your Community, Donate to United Way.
United Way is focused on the building blocks for a good life – a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, good health and secure basic needs. With your support we can achieve these goals. Please consider United Way in your charitable giving plans. We all win when a child succeeds in school, when a family becomes financially stable and when people have good health. Join the thousands of people throughout our area that are a part of this dynamic movement.
Policy on Voluntary Giving
- Any use of pressure or coercion is unethical and does far more harm to our organization and those we serve than any short-term gains it may produce.
- Contributing to the United Way of Williamson County should be presented as an opportunity to positively impact the community.
- The most effective workplace campaigns are the result of employee education about United Way and the value it brings to the donor through its partnerships with government, schools, businesses, individuals and other non-profit organizations.
- Payroll deduction allows donors to give as generously as they like by deducting a small amount per pay period.
- These principles are shared with our volunteers and with the companies who participate in employee campaigns.
After you make your gift online, if it is “In Memory Of” or “In Honor Of” please contact United Way’s office at (615) 771-2312 with the memorial information so the family can be notified.
