About United Way: United Way of the Mid-South is a $19M non-profit, public foundation that mobilizes financial and human resources to meet critical needs and to help ensure hundreds of thousands of Mid-Southerners each year can achieve their highest potential. We are fighting to decrease poverty in our community by addressing the essential building blocks for success – education, financial stability, and health – while maintaining vital safety net services in food, shelter, and safety for individuals facing crisis situations.
We stand as a unified partner in support of high-performing nonprofit agencies, in 8-counties, on the front lines to lead major cross-sector, collective impact initiatives on reducing poverty. Specifically, United Way is partnering with over 400 companies and wisely investing the contributions of over 40,000 donors – transforming lives, families, and entire neighborhoods. By supporting United Way, you help move the needle on poverty and make our community a place where everyone can thrive.
