Funded Partners

2019 Funded Partners

Funded partners help the United Way advance its mission of enhancing the quality of life in our community by helping those in need. While we fund a variety of initiatives directly, our work wouldn't be complete without funding programs across Monongalia and Preston Counties through our Funded Partners. Together, we are able to build a stronger and better community by developing resources and creating partnerships to empower individuals to improve their lives. 

When you see the "United Way Funded Partner" logo in these organization's entries, on flyers, and at the bottom of websites, you can trust they've gone through a rigorous "Standards of Accountability" process to become one of our Funded Partners. Find out more about our funding process here.
