A Letter to the Community
United Way of Central Carolinas is continuing to align all our programs to focus on two core objectives: leading community impact work to address the lack of economic mobility in our region, and generating revenue to support the impact initiatives.
These strategic changes include focusing our volunteer program on pairing individual volunteers who have skills and experience in specific fields like process management, IT, human resources, etc. with one of our United Way partner agencies for meaningful, long-term service engagements. Moving forward, we will focus on skills-based volunteerism, as well as corporate volunteerism and signature community events like MLK Call to Service and Hands On Charlotte Day. This approach will allow us to have the greatest impact in the community.
The flexible volunteer calendar program will be discontinued as of June 30, 2019 as the transition to our new volunteering model takes place over the next two months.
If you would like to continue to volunteer for individual projects, we encourage you to visit our partner, Share Charlotte, for a list of opportunities offered throughout the city.
President & CEO, United Way of Central Carolinas
