A word from our leader

Dear United Way staff,

The time has come, once again, for our annual internal campaign! This week is a great opportunity for us to not only support our programs, but to find greater unity as a staff and rediscover the vision of United Way.

As you are all well aware, none of the work that we do would be possible without resources. Without them, we would not be able to provide books for children, home visits and developmental screenings for new parents, or resource referrals to families seeking help.

Many of our donors, whether they give through a corporate campaign or donate as individuals, give to us at great personal sacrifice. We need to be sure that we are not asking anyone to give what we are unwilling to give ourselves. This week, we have the chance to lead by example and demonstrate our commitment to the common good.

No one knows what giving means better than you do. Thank you for exemplifying what it means to LIVE UNITED.

Sincerely,

 

Bill Hulterstrom

President and CEO

100% of your donation goes to programs, and 100% of your donation stays local, helping people you know

1 out of 5 third graders in Utah County doesn't read well enough to succeed in school. Reading at home is a proven way to improve literacy.

 

If you give $5/paycheck,  you'll provide 28 books to families who otherwise couldn't afford books, through programs like EveryDay Learners and Sub for Santa. Read more about literacy...

About 14% of Utah County families live in poverty. We can build self-reliance in families while helping them meet their basic needs.

 

If you give $25/paycheck,  you'll provide free tax help for 89 families through programs like VITA and Centro Hispano. Tax assistance is one of the most proven ways to beat poverty. Read more about taxes and poverty...

Stress and anxiety among children are on the rise in Utah County, and it's happening earlier and earlier. 

 

If you give $50/paycheck,  you'll provide emotional support and therapy for 11 at-risk children, through programs like Family Support and Treatment Center and Big Brothers Big Sisters
