The Annual Community Campaign will run through the coming six months to raise funds that will allow the organization to allocate support for more than two dozen nonprofit programs that work in partnership to provide resources for basic needs, education, financial stability and health of individuals and families throughout Franklin County. In addition, United Way provides in-kind support, volunteer resources, and other donor-designated funding to many nonprofits in the community through the outreach of the campaign. The purpose of the
United Way Annual Community Campaign is to bring together the gifts and talents of the community and invest in services that will improve access and strengthen local services.
