WIDE REACH -- United Way is the best way to reach the most people with your charitable donations. Through our network of local youth, health, and social services agencies, your gifts help provide essential programs in our community. United Way supports our safety net here in Whitman County.
WISE INVESTMENT -- United Way keeps administrative costs to a minimum. That means we put more of your money where you want it to go -- to help those who need it most. In recent years, 85 percent of the funds we raised were allocated to Palouse area agencies, while 10 percent paid for fund-raising costs and 5 percent for our local administrative costs.
WHERE YOUR MONEY GOES
RESULTS EXPECTED -- To become a United Way agency, local organizations must demonstrate how they provide vital services to the people of Pullman and Whitman County. Each year, an all-volunteer committee from United Way evaluates each agency's performance and make recommendations for funding based on the agency's results and plans for the coming year.
YOUR INTERESTS -- Nearly all of your contribution to United Way stays in Whitman County. Building a stronger community and ensuring a brighter future is what United Way is all about.
LIVE UNITED -- As we help individual neighbors in need in Pullman and Whitman County, we strengthen our communities as a whole, helping us all. That's what it means to Live United. Please join us.
