21-Day Equity Challenge

SERVICES

WHO WE ARE

In collaboration with our partners and community leaders, we identify our community’s most pressing needs. The money we raise is used to address the root causes of those problems through strategic investments and partnerships that achieve measurable, lasting results.

The most significant problems in our community are interconnected and complex. They require a coordinated approach by many different organizations to solve. UWFC and volunteers on the impact council are uniquely positioned to understand the needs in the community and how proposals from our partners will address these needs. We hold our partners and ourselves accountable for the money we invest in every program.

United Way of Forsyth County is working to create a thriving community by investing in neighborhoods and households with a specific focus on creating equitable communities, improving economic mobility, and ensuring childhood and student success. UWFC invests in over 60 programs and initiatives with more than 40 local partner nonprofit organizations.

WHAT WE DO

The problems in our community that really need addressing are significant, large scale challenges. None of these issues can be solved by one organization; the problems that exist are bigger than any one of us. Problems like homelessness, third grade reading proficiency, high school graduation rates and poverty. 

We believe in being innovative. We convene our partners across government, business, philanthropy, faith communities, non-profits, and the private sector so that we can achieve lasting social change in our community. We and our partners collaborate on intentional common goals, aligning all our time, investments, and staff resources, and hold each other accountable so we can make the greatest difference possible. And we catalyze systemic change by working directly with the communities most impacted, so their voices are heard.

United Way of Forsyth County is funding over 60 different local programs through our Community-Wide and Place Matters investment strategies. Listed below are agencies receiving funding through these two investment processes. Other community partners receive funds through United Way of Forsyth County, including Trellis (formerly Hospice & Palliative Care Center), Second Harvest Food Bank, Girl Scouts, and Boy Scouts – Old Hickory Council. Additionally, last year, over 300 agencies and nonprofit organizations from our local area and across the country received designated donations directly through United Way of Forsyth County’s Annual Campaign.

United Way of Forsyth County also funds and supports other critical initiatives in our community, including NC 211, Housing Matters (formerly the Ten-Year Plan to End Chronic Homelessness), The Data Sharing Project, The Partnership for Prosperity, and our key partnership with Neighbors for Better Neighborhoods.
