Now is the time to help. Campaign 2020 is underway.
Last year, the United Way of Greenbrier Valley accomplished something extraordinary. Not only did we break our all-time fundraising record for the third year in a row, our small but mighty nonprofit also supported 30 partner programs, renewed support of Project Appleseed, and served thousands of local families in need through WV 2-1-1, our information and referral hotline operated out of the Lewisburg office.
As we launch Campaign 2020, we are determined to maintain this positive momentum. We remain undeterred by the extraordinary circumstances of our nation’s fight against COVID-19 as United Way exists to face community challenges head on. We are the organization most strategically positioned to respond to crises.
As a matter of fact, in March we partnered with the Greenbrier Valley Community Foundation to create the COVID-19 Relief Fund. Since its inception, the fund has raised $216K and provided relief to 38 local nonprofits, churches, and civic organizations deploying COVID-19 response and relief efforts. But, as you know, life hasn’t stopped for the virus. We still have lots of work to do.
Take a moment to watch the video below as some of partners and stakeholders share why United Way support is vital to our community!
An unprecedented campaign
Our annual campaign will look a little different this year. There will be no public fundraising events, and there are no community chairs to spearhead the campaign. But we have you. And we have the devotion of a community that knows when the unexpected strikes, United Way of Greenbrier Valley responds.
Our Board of Directors are asking you to help meet the rising needs of the communities we serve in the areas of health, education, and basic needs. We believe there is no more important time than now to help neighbors who are struggling.
We ask you to give generously: Consider the tasting tickets you didn’t purchase at the Lewisburg Chocolate Festival, the auction bids you didn’t make, the donor reception our campaign chairs won’t host. Simply, we ask you to help us make this unprecedented campaign the success we know it can be.
