2021 Issue-Based Grant

After a tumultuous 2020 for our community, we did the research, cut our budget, and found $87,500 to help those in need. In spring of 2021, United Way facilitated an issue-based grant process that targeted two of the most pressing concerns Chatham County is currently facing: Homelessness/Homelessness Prevention and K-12 Education due to COVID learning loss. Four nonprofit programs were awarded funding: Love Chatham; Boys & Girls Club of Siler City; Boys & Girls Club of Pittsboro; and Communities in Schools. 

2020 Day of Service

The United Way of Chatham County hosted the first-ever Day of Service September 3, 2020. The event officially kicked off the annual fall fundraising season and connected more than 100 volunteers to opportunities to serve in Chatham County. The day played host to nine in-person volunteer opportunities, three donation drop off sites and two virtual service opportunities that could be submitted on the United Way website.
