We're Effective -  Each year United Way touches the lives of more than 30,000 Rutherford County residents.  Clearly no other organization helps so many people in so many ways.

We're Accountable - Independent audits of United Way and its agencies are conducted and analyzed annually.  In fact, everything we do is governed by an active board of directors.
