United Way looks at the big picture and invests in education programs and initiatives that work. Gifts to United Way help children succeed in school and life.
EDUCATION: Children succeed academically and in life by focusing on:
- Children reading at grade-level by fourth grade
- Students entering ninth grade ready to succeed
A good education is essential to getting a good job. An income that can cover today’s needs and save for tomorrow solidifies a family’s foundation. Good health helps children succeed at school and enables adults to be productive at work. It’s all CONNECTED.
Last year, through gifts made directly to United Way, 4,600 youth improved skills, such as study skills, needed for academic success.
By contributing directly to United Way, you make the greatest impact for children and families. Together, we build a stronger community for all of us.
