Why Donate to United Way?

By United Way of King County, on October 24, 2015 | In News

Our community is fantastic. True! 

People in our community need help during tough times. Also true.

When you donate, you become the link. Together, we can build a community where people have homes, students graduate and families are financially stable.

Donate today!

With you on board, United Way is awesome. Awesome at helping our community where it needs it most. Where’s that?

These are just a few of reasons why you should give to United Way of King County today.

Give because it’s right

Our reach — Donations (like the one we need from you!) reach 500,000 people each year. Meaning you can be part of changing the lives of a half-million people for the better.

Volunteers take that even further. 33,000 times annually, people connect to volunteer opportunities. They’re donating their time to their own neighborhoods. They’re donating their talents to help others. Everyday superheroes on our team!

Our numbers — United Way is grateful to have an endowment fund started by the Gates family. With that fund and with our drive for efficiency, on average we send 96 cents of every dollar of every donation straight out to help people in need. That’s seriously low overhead plus a serious commitment to the most effective support services.

Our passion — It. Drives. Everything. United Way employees take every chance possible to reach out to more people all the time, both people who need help and people who want to help. Are you the latter? Will you put your passion into action?

Give because you care
