“May your choices reflect your hopes, not your fears.” – Nelson Mandela

When you think about what your United Way will accomplish next year, do you think about the stark realities of campaign, or do you think about how many people your United Way will help become self-sufficient or enter kindergarten ready to learn? United Ways have the power to change their communities like no other nonprofit organization, but only when they are focused on the hopefulness of changing lives. With 2018 right around the corner, think about what your United Way could accomplish next year if you measured how many lives were changed, and not how much money was raised. Every choice an issue-focused United Way makes changes people’s lives. We hope that your United Way experiences the hopefulness that comes from changing lives in 2018!
