Eighty-eight years of bringing together resources to identify and effectively address our community’s most vital human needs - that is quite a track record of success for our United Way - and one that would not have been possible without the generosity of our donors.

As our community’s needs evolve, we are challenged to think creatively with our partner agencies and others about how we do our work. One critical step toward long-term change is addressing the root causes of issues to prevent them from becoming problems in the first place. Ultimately, this will require funding beyond the scope of the annual campaign.

As part of this process, we are pleased to announce the creation of the United Way of Forsyth County Foundation. When you make a planned gift to the United Way of Forsyth County Foundation, you provide
vital resources to:


Expand intervention & prevention strategies with a strong track record of success


Replicate these strategies to other populations that are not yet being served


Grow collaborative initiatives to solve chronic societal problems
