Education, income and health make up the building blocks of opportunity that enable you — and ALL Quad Citizens — to succeed and thrive. That’s why United Way focuses on all three simultaneously, bringing together the resources and partners to build solutions that address their interconnectedness.
When you invest in United Way, you create lasting change right here in your own hometown. The money raised here stays here to provide opportunities for every Quad Citizen to live their best possible life.
Every Dollar Counts
When you invest with United Way, your dollar goes a long way:
- Child well-being: For every $1 invested in prenatal and infant care programs focusing on child well-being and healthy homes for children, there’s a $5.59 return.
- Out of school support: A $50 investment enables meal sponsors to provide program enrichment, quality improvement, and overall enhancements to increase impact and expand reach.
- Pathways to work: A $250 investment in career training materials helps a person get certified for a job that earns $6,300 more per year.
