upon a shared community vision – and teamwork among our nonprofi t, public and civic organizations. That’s
why United Way of the Midlands is part of a team that’s working together to develop community-wide goals.
Determine the best ways to measure success at a community-wide level. Put each group’s unique strengths to
work for our community’s future.

Community is about great neighbors, strong organizations, and a willingness to champion those who want a
better life – for themselves, and for others. United Way of the Midlands is ready for the work ahead. With your

It’s people like you who make our Community Strong.

Our shared future.
