Question: Where Does the Money Go?
Answer: The best part about being a United Way donor is that dollars raised here stay here in our community where it is needed most - directly into local impact programs. When you give to United Way, your contribution can make an immediate difference in the lives of our neighbors in greatest need. It also fuels long-term solutions by funding innovative, local non-profits with proven results. More information about programs funded can be found in your brochure or on our website.
Question: Why Should I Give to United Way and Not Directly to an Agency?
Answer: No other single organization has the scope, expertise, or influence to bring hundreds of human service agencies, government, education partners and dedicated volunteers around a common vision of achieving long lasting results for a stronger, healthier Lebanon County. When you give to a specific charity, you support a cause. When you give to United way, your gift becomes part of a collective effort to strengthen our entire community. Your gift to United Way is a force for change, and allows you to accomplish more than you can alone or through a single charity.
Question: Is My Gift Tax-Deductible?
Answer: Yes, United Way of Lebanon County is a federally registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation. Donations to United Way are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by an individual’s or corporation’s circumstances.
