The Community Impact Fund supports the work of United Way and our partner agencies — select nonprofit organizations delivering measurable results in the areas of Education, Income, Health and Financial Stability — to help support a community where all individuals and families achieve their potential. At the United Way of Campbell County, our relationships with the local business, nonprofit, government and labor communities give us a unique perspective into the needs of our local community — and how they connect. We’re also able to take stock of the gaps in service available to those in need.
