CHANGING CONDITIONS IN PIERCE COUNTY
United Way of Pierce County has been serving this community for nearly 100 years. In the beginning, we were all about raising funds and distributing them to local programs. We still do fundraising and we still invest in local efforts but we are not the same organization we were in 1921. Today, United Way of Pierce County is about more than funding human services. We are about changing conditions and making a lasting impact in our community. We still raise money annually through our workplace campaign but we also combine those funds with the gifts of other individuals and grants. We strategically invest in programs and efforts that are aligned with our goal of breaking the cycle of poverty because we know one organzation alone can't solve our community's toughest issues, but together, united, we can. We support those efforts with volunteer help and in-kind goods. We advocate at the state and local level to make sure government resources for struggling families are available. We put every resource we have into breaking the cycle of poverty in Pierce County.
HOW DO WE DO THIS?
