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 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.

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.
