Together we can inspire & empower.
The United Way of Central Virginia’s purpose is to improve the quality of life for our most disadvantaged neighbors by identifying the region’s critical needs, and deploying resources to achieve positive, sustainable community change. We focus our resources on funding 38 strong, well-managed programs and initiatives at 26 partner agencies.
Annual workplace employee campaigns, corporate gifts and individual gifts are United Way’s major sources of funding. In 2017 over 100 local workplaces conducted United Way employee giving campaigns.
In order to fulfill our purpose and commitment to the region, United Way of Central Virginia incurs necessary operating expenses including fundraising, marketing and staffing. We are diligent about our fiduciary responsibility and are proud to maintain operating costs less than 15%.
In order to ensure that donated funds have the greatest impact on those in need, we offer corporate partners the opportunity to participate in our Corporate Keystone Partners program. Corporate Keystone Partners are companies who choose to direct their annual corporate gifts to pay United Way of Central Virginia’s administrative and campaign expenses. To date, 23 corporations across Central Virginia have expressed their support for the United Way’s role by participating in this program. As a result, 100% of their employees’ donations go directly towards helping people in Central Virginia by supporting our 38 funded programs. Keystone Partners also gain valuable marketing and public recognition for their donations.
