United Way of Rutherford County Community divided up in two focus groups:

YOUR DONATION MAKES A DIFFERENCE

  • $25 a month will provide the following services to a child that has been physically or sexually abused: an interview in a child friendly environment by a trained child forensic interviewer, counseling for a licensed therapist to assist in the healing proces, and support throughout the court process for the child and non-offending caregivers.
  • $31.25 will provide a daily meal for a week for a home bound senior.
  • $3.30 per week will help with rent or heating assistance for a month for a family with minor children.
  • $4 per week will allow a mentally challenged child to attend one week of summer camp.

WHY INVEST IN UNITED WAY?

  • Volunteers are at the heart of the United Way decision-making. As a result, fundraising and administrative costs are held to a minimum, making your gift work as hard as you do.
  • 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.
