Community Impact

Community Impact Model

Our Community Impact Model is focused on leading sustainable improvements in education, financial stability, and health to improve people’s lives and strengthen our communities.

Achieving our Community Impact Model will require a variety of tactics including research, building collaborative community partnerships, funding, volunteerism, and advocacy. This process is illustrated through the community impact graphic depicting the continuous evolution of our work.

The Community Impact Fund

The Community Impact Fund “unites” donations with thousands of others to create the greatest impact on our community. Donations to the overall fund advance the common good by focusing on education, financial stability, and health – the building blocks to a quality of life. Through United Way’s Community Impact Fund, we invest in measurable solutions to keep students on track to graduation, help families achieve financial stability, and provide people the tools to lead healthy lives.

We hold ourselves and our impact partners accountable for results. The Community Impact Fund enables us to evaluate programs, monitor results and continuously improve our initiatives to create lasting, positive change. All programs and initiatives are evaluated by trained volunteers and staff who review program results, agency financials and stability. Results are reported to the community to keep donors informed of their investments and impact.
