There’s still time to support U-M United Way campaign

December 1, 2021  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

There is still time to make a pledge to the U?M United Way. The 2021 campaign, with a goal of raising $1 million, invites you to make a pledge and make a difference in our community. There are many in the community who are still impacted by the devastating pandemic and need our collective assistance.

Your pledge will support programs and services that are helping to improve many lives in our community through United Way of Washtenaw County. Agencies supported by the United Way help members throughout our community who need it the most by:

  • assisting with enrollment in public benefits, such as Medicaid and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program;
  • providing short?term shelter and connecting individuals and families with resources they need to get back on their feet;
  • helping low?income residents connect with primary care, reliable food sources; dental care, mental health care, and substance use disorder care; and
  • intervening when seniors need it most to keep from losing their homes, get the medical care they need, and pay their utility bills.

Your gift to the campaign, through the Community Impact Fund* or a 501(c)(3) of your choice, will have a lasting and positive impact on the future of our neighbors in need.

To make your secure pledge visit the U-M United Way ePledge System. Hard copy pledge forms are also available by visiting the campaign website.

If you have already contributed to the campaign, THANK YOU for doing your part to help our community, It is truly appreciated. If not, we hope you will consider donating today.

Please note: These are challenging times for many and the campaign appreciates not everyone can make a pledge to the campaign. However, we hope you will consider other ways to make a difference including becoming a volunteer or taking the equity challenge.

*Community Impact Funds are used where the need is the greatest. UWWC utilizes Community Impact Funds to invest in nearly 100 programs that support priority areas at 60 community organizations. Priority areas meet the needs of Washtenaw County that includes early childhood care and education, school-age youth, health & nutrition/hunger relief, senior assistance, homelessness & housing, and financial stability.
