When you give to United Way of Butte and Anaconda...It stays Local.
For 68 years we have provided service to our communities using our mission and vision statement as a guide.
Our focus is on:
EDUCATION of youth and adults
Improving the HEALTH of individuals
Assisting individuals gain FINANCIAL STABILITY
Our methods used to meet our mission include solicitations for funding, collaborations with other agencies and recruitment of volunteers
Our delivery model includes using the money we garner to fund other non-profits and sponsoring community events.
For many of these agencies, we are the sole stable financial source for their programs. For others, we providefinancial support for supplemental programs needed to meet the total needs of their clients. We also sponsor five community events. Three of these annual events helplow-income families dress their children, provide new moms and moms-to-be with needed supplies for their babies and deliver nutritional soup that has been assembled and prepared byvolunteers. Two community programs do not have a financial component. In these we sponsor a fun, educational event for children in the elementary grades and provide volunteer physical help to homeowners whose abilities are limited and to other non-profits withlimited finances.
We are governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and rely heavily on community volunteers for the success of our programs.
Our goals for 2018-2019 include raising $168,000, impacting 6,000 individuals in our communities and recruiting 250 volunteers to help us deliver our programs.
I know there will be many challenges ahead but if we share the burden together we can continue the fight for the health, education and financial stabilityof every person in our communities.
Together we can show what it means to
