Please choose to LIVE UNITED.

It takes everyone working together to improve lives and strengthen our community. United Way of Northeast Florida would like to invite you to LIVE UNITED. Here’s how:

GIVE to United Way’s Community Impact Fund

Many of your staff may have used United Way-funded programs without even realizing it. Giving to United Way helps ensure the continued availability of the programs and strategies that your staff and their families, friends, and neighbors may already be benefitting from. United Way of Northeast Florida’s Community Impact Fund addresses critical needs in education, income, and health that cross every demographic.

ADVOCATE for change in our community

By educating those we come in contact with, we can make people aware of not only the needs of our community but what steps are being taken to address those needs. One of the ways to advocate is through Resource Management, where more than 100 local volunteers make careful decisions about how to distribute Community Impact Fund dollars to programs of certified agencies.

VOLUNTEER in our five-county Northeast Florida region

Throughout 2010, over 4000 volunteers worked more than 8500 hours on 175 projects across the First Coast. Volunteer projects like these save non-profit agencies time and money, and allow them to focus more of both on their programs. United Way of Northeast Florida has dedicated staff for matching volunteers with volunteer opportunities, as well as a partnership with HandsOn Jacksonville. Opportunities include, but are not limited to:
• Group and individual volunteer opportunities
• Affinity group volunteer projects (such as United Way’s women’s group, WILL, or its young professionals’ group, Atlantic Circle)
• Resource Management
