All gifts are important to United Way. The Monroe County communities are lucky to have individuals supporting our organization independent of the workplace.
Often, individuals have supported United Way through their active years in the workforce. Upon retirement they continue to support through a direct gift.
Workplace giving continues to be the single largest area of support to the annual United Way campaign. Whether they choose to use a payroll giving option, a credit card option, a one-time gift option or want United Way to invoice them for their pledge, employees through the workplace are making a big difference in our county.
