Rating: 5 stars  

The United Way provides several wonderful services for residents of Callaway County. Our church frequently donates food to SERVE and for their annual Christmas efforts to provide gifts for the underpriviledged. I make donations through my employer each time I am paid because this is an organization that provides so much for so many.

I like this organization because they don't spend money on overhead. They don't pay rent or utilities or any of that because the boss runs the whole shootin' match out of her home. What a great investment. The money I give goes to people who NEED it, not the electric company.

There are a bunch of agencies in the county they make a difference in: the scouts, y, 4-h, senior center...the list goes on and on.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I have given to the Callaway County United Way for many years. When I worked, I gave through payroll deductions and never even missed a dime. Now that I'm retired, I give annually with my credit card. It's a good investment

I don’t have to decide which charity is the most important.
They ALL play a vital role in our community and one gift to the United Way will help all the agencies to deliver services to people in need.
Payroll deduction makes giving both easy and affordable.
For as little as $1 a week, I can change someone's life.

I can't contribute a lot but I know that I am helping others in Callaway County when I do.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

no changes.

After reading through the majority of the reviews I discovered that noboy has mentioned that a donation to the Callaway County United Way is tax-deductible. April 15th, tax day, is coming up and that is also a good fact about the United Way. Not the most important one but a good one.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Thousands of people are helped by United Way agency servcies each year. From children in scouting and 4-H, to individuals that need counceling services, to women in abusive relationships to home delivered meals for our elderly.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

None needed. Well run organization.

The United Way is uniquely positioned to help our community because they know how and where funding is needed. They provide vital support to well-known non-profits such as the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, as well as non-nationally known charities who likely wouldn’t otherwise exist without United Way funding.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

All the United Way agencies are import for the community. A gift to the United Way funds them all.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

none needed
