Live United - United Way of Central WV

Invest in Your Community

Invest in your community. Give to United Way. United Way is working to advance the common good by focusing on education, income and health. These are the building blocks for a good life - a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, and good health.


Where the Money Goes

Your United Way contribution goes to work creating lasting changes right where you live. Local volunteers invest your contribution in the areas of education, income, and health.

Some of the funds support programs and services that help people with basic needs, such as childcare, emergency shelter, and free health clinics. Volunteers direct your contributions to the programs that get the best results.

One percent of your contribution goes to United Way of America, the national organization. United Way of America uses these funds to support national programs, such as United Way Financial Stability Partnership, United Way Success By 6 and United Way 2-1-1.

Donating Stocks/Securities

For many people, investments in securities represent a significant portion of their assets. Stocks and other investments are often an important part of one's long-term plans, providing a nest egg to rely on in the future.

Did you know that your investments can also be an excellent source for charitable gifts? Stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and other securities that you have owned for more than one year not only make convenient gifts, but can provide you with welcome tax benefits as well.
