This is the United Fund's 45th year of service to Cumberland County. I don't believe any other non -profit has touched as many lives as this agency has in the past 45 years.

The United Fund of Cumberland County is the perfect example of a top quality nonprofit organization. It's total focus is on the 30 plus organizations that it serves and the betterment of Cumberland County. In it's 45 years the United Fund has helped the handicapped, the battered, the poor, and the needy. It helps all age groups from infant to elderly. If there is an organization that brings our community together to help others it is the United Fund of Cumberland County, Inc.

The United Fund is one of the most important organizations in our community. It is the base referral and funding source for many non-profits in our community. It is managed by a well organized Director and volunteer Board of Directors. They work hard to raise funds and try to increase their goal each year, so that more people are reached. Thousands of people are assisted by the United Fund donations and all the money stays in our area.

The Great!

The most enriching experience that I have felt is to see the money raised and then in motion. I have visited nearly every agency that receives UF money. They are all very deserving and do remarkable things with their funding. Most of the agencies provide a direct support service that assists many individuals in a variety of ways. Those on the receiving end are very grateful and will tell you how these services make a great difference in their lives.

The United Fund of Cumberland County located in Crossville, Tennessee is a valuable asset to our community and the 30 plus organizations it supports. Our agency provides services to Adults with Intellectual Disabilities and without the support from the United Fund, our Day Center would not be in existence. Our Day Center supports over 100 service recipients who need daily assistance and supervision to remain safe, healthy and happy. The United Fund is one of our great partners in providing services and supports to those folks. They not only support us financially, but assist us with public announcements, referrals, public awareness and public relations, and many other resources that are hard to find in a small rural town.

The Great!

As an agency supported by the United Fund, I have personally seen where their money is spent and how thousands of lives can be affected by local donations going back to local non-profit organizations.

Being a volunteer for the United Fund of Cumberland County has opened my eyes to the various organizations that are available to provide help to those in need. Cumberland County is so fortunate to have so many partner agencies that work together to help children, elderly, low income individuals, abused, and the list goes on & on. I also serve on the allocation committee and have had the opportunity to speak with most of the agencies United Fund contributes to. We do this in order to make sure there is no overlapping in services or funding. We evaluate the service the agency provides, the number of individuals it is serving, the specific use of the funds they are requesting, and much more. The best part about the United Fund of Cumberland County is that the funds donated to the organization stay in Cumberland County and go to help the people right here at home.

My position as a board member and chairman of a committee of the United Fund has allowed me to meet and be educated by the incredible agency employees and volunteers of the various United Fund agencies. Through United Fund allocation committees or the Dimpled Globe Awards Committee I have met and interviewed many individuals who are both inspiring and inspired. They are highly motivated and their selfless dedication to reach out to those in need is a wonderful "pass it on" experience. How could anyone not be impressed by the personal dedication of Denise Melton of the House of Hope or the mentors and leadership of Kids on the Rise, to name only a few examples. From retirees to young volunteers, the United Fund of Cumberland County can be very proud of these individuals, they are the basis for a great community.

Seeing the increases in funding, and support of agencies, the recognition by the community of the value of the United Fund agencies and volunteers is demonstrated. The DGA beginning with little more than an idea has been supported financially and in many other ways from the very beginning by community residents and the United Fund. I could not ask for more.

I can't think of any but there are always new ideas, new needs, and new directions to "Make a difference" in our community. As a board member I would always be sensitive to such fresh ideas.

The United Fund of Cumberland County is one of our most important partners. We are a domestic and sexual violence program in Cumberland County and the United Funds helps to fund our Children's Program. Our Children's Program serves children who have witnessed domestic and sexual violence or have been victims. It also provides prevention education in the schools from K-12th grade. United Fund dollars helped us to serve over 3,000 children last year alone! United Fund is always there for us, supporting our efforts to end domestic and sexual violence in our community!

As the Executive Director of the Avalon Center, I have worked closely with the United Fund of Cumberland County by requesting funds for our Children's Program. The United Fund of Cumberland County is exceptional in fundraising and always meets the needs of the many agencies it serves. I am one of thirty seven agencies United Fund serves.

United Fund does an excellent job. I wouldn't change a thing! It is amazing what they do on such a limited budget and staff! I am truly grateful for the director and board. They all have hearts of gold!

The United Fund of Cumberland County is one of the shining stars of this rural community of 60,000 plus folks who believe in the community and care about each other. The history of this community is one of strength, commitment, and dedication to making a better life for the future generations who will call this area home. Amazingly, during the past 2 or 3 years of extreme unfriendly economic climate, where our economy is based on agriculture, moderate industry, tourism, etc., this community has come together to meet exceptional goals of giving back..to those who have suffered from unemployment, medical catastrophes, and all the backlash that follows and directly affects the families. Children with parents who cannot find work ( or have abandoned the children and left them in the care of grandparents, etc.) are taking home food in backpacks each Friday afternoon as they leave school to insure they eat over the weekend, elderly folks who live alone in rural areas of the county and try to exist on meager monthly social security checks receive hot meals delivered by smiling, caring faces daily, who receive assistance with
uftilities to insure they are protected from the severe weather, those with special needs have access to facilities for training, learning, those who are impacted by catastrophic weather and need emergency shelter, food, etc.
Neighbors helping neighbors, caring, giving...this is what the United Fund of Cumberland County is about!

The Great!

working with some of the 36 non profit agencies that the United Fund helps to fund...amazing how much we learn about our community, about the organizations and the folks they serve.

Work harder to raise more money to help fund even more agencies.... to insure no child goes hungry, no elderly person goes without the basic necessities of life such as food, clothing, warm shelter...

Review from Guidestar
June 18, 2010

The United Fund began in 1966 to raise money to help people in our community. The United Fund currently serves 37 non-profit agencies in the Cumberland County Area. These agencies aid the homeless, the hungry, victims of emergencies/disasters, adult and child victims of domestic violence and sexual assault, victims of crime, our military, citizens with brain disorders and disabilities, low-income families, the elderly and the county's most precious resources, our children and youth. The United Fund has one part-time employee and a committed team of 30 volunteer board members.

The Great!

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

seeing the needs being met by these partner agencies.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

That they have a low overhead.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Fund every non-profit in our community for years.
