“All you have shall someday be given; therefore, give now, that the season of giving may be yours and not your inheritors.” – Kahlil Gibran
Since our inception, United Way of Southwest Alabama’s (UWSWA) annual campaign has been called the “Community Campaign.” This is because contributions are given to community members by community members. Each year, individuals and businesses from diverse backgrounds and sectors step up in support of Living United. They do so by contributing personally, running a workplace giving campaign at their companies, making a corporate contributions or matching gift towards their employees’ support, sponsoring a UWSWA event or hosting their own event and donating the proceeds, or offering in-kind services or products that advance our mission or provide goods for someone in need.
