This is YOUR United Way: 2019 Campaign

In 2018, we impacted 60,148 lives in Central Virginia because of our generous community.

This year, this campaign is inspired by the work that you do for your community. We want to put our donors in the driver seat and show what the power of community can do. United Way of Central Virginia will showcase how your dollars impact our amazing agencies. Agencies that work above and beyond to help our community. 

Bill Varner, our President & CEO commented on the meaning behind this year’s campaign. “This year’s campaign will focus on the collective power of the community to achieve positive change. The challenges we are working to eliminate are often deeply rooted and longstanding. The United Way of Central Virginia places emphasis on collaboration and cooperation as the keys to affecting meaningful change, encouraging our partner agencies to seek innovative ways to support one another while working towards the common aim of an improved quality of life for everyone in Central Virginia. Only through a unified effort will we have the strength, resources and capacity to accomplish this.”

This year, we want to show our support in all of the counties that we serve! We will be hosting 5 individual kickoffs in each of our servicing counties. You can see the schedule below as well as flyers for each individual kickoff.
