GivingTuesday - A Community Wide Celebration of Generosity!

Sponsored Content provided by Tommy Taylor - CEO, United Way

Kindness and generosity come in many forms.  It can be as simple as words of encouragement and as complex as programs that bring families from crisis to stability. It is not important where your generosity lands in that spectrum, only that you cultivate and celebrate it. 

Everyone has something to give.  When we combine our gifts, we have the power to create change and improve our community.  Whether it is your time, talent, or treasure, please consider an act of generosity this Giving Tuesday, November 30th, 2021.
GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Since then, it has grown into a year-round global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate and celebrate generosity.

Your local United Way has been here for Cape Fear for 80 years. We support 45 different nonprofits that implement local programs in education, health, and financial stability.  These programs ensure a safer, healthier, and more united community.  United Way offers you a well-rounded social return and tracks the progress for you.  Learn more about our partnerships here: https://uwcfa.org/agency-partners/

I want to thank you on behalf of the community for your generosity.  Many things have changed in the history of the United Way of the Cape Fear Area, but one thing has not.  Local heroes step up for our community and make a difference every year in a united way.
