10 Reasons to Give
1. Local Impact
Donations are raised and invested locally to provide for the needs of citizens in your local community.
United Way combines the financial needs of many nonprofit organizations into one effort, eliminating multiple appeals and wasteful duplication.
United Way ensures that donor dollars are spent wisely through agency reporting and frequent review by volunteers.
Through the allocations process, United Way ensures that basic health and human services are available around the greater Duluth area should you, your family, or a fellow community member ever need them.
United Way partners rely on their allocation from United Way to budget and plan their services for the year. United Way enables agencies to focus on providing services rather than fundraising, thus keeping their overhead costs low.
Programs funded by United Way provide an alternative to government services for many of the people who fall between the cracks.
All gifts are not only tax deductible, but also keep taxes down by keeping people off welfare, helping the disabled, reducing crime and delinquency, etc.
The payroll deduction option available through the workplace makes giving easy and convenient, enabling individuals to make a difference all year long.
United Way brings local citizens from all walks of life together in the spirit of volunteerism by working to create a more caring and responsive community.
