United Way works hard to advance the common good by focusing on education, health, financial stability and safety net. These are the building blocks for a good life - a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, and good health.

Donating Stocks/Securities

For many people, investments in securities represent a significant portion of their assets. Stocks and other investments are often an important part of one's long-term plans, providing a nest egg to rely on in the future.

Did you know that your investments can also be an excellent source for charitable gifts? Stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and other securities that you have owned for more than one year not only make convenient gifts, but can provide you with welcome tax benefits as well.
