Join Us for a Meaningful End-of-the-year Impact

As we embrace the holiday season and the spirit of giving, we are reaching out to you, a valued supporter of the United Way of Southwest Alabama. Your dedication to our cause has been instrumental in empowering our community and transforming countless lives. Together, we’ve impacted the lives of 242,216 individuals served by United Way and our partner agencies, and with your continued support, we can do even more in the coming year.

We understand that this time of year presents an opportunity for individuals and families to reflect on the impact they want to create in their communities. By choosing to contribute to United Way, you are choosing to uplift those in need and foster positive change.

Making a donation to United Way before the year concludes not only creates a profound impact on our community but also offers the chance to maximize your tax benefits. There are various ways to support our mission:

  • Outright Gifts: Your direct contributions have an immediate and significant impact on the programs and services we provide to individuals in Choctaw, Clarke, Mobile, and Washington Counties.
  • Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCD): If you’re 70 1/2, the age for required minimum distributions (RMDs) from retirement accounts, consider using QCDs as a tax-efficient way to support United Way.
  • Bequest by Will / Living Trust: Leaving a legacy gift ensures that your commitment to our cause continues to create positive change long into the future.

We are immensely proud of the progress made possible by your generosity. Thanks to your support last year, the UWSWA raised $3,129,319. These funds directly impacted the lives of 242,216 individuals by providing education, financial stability, healthcare, and access to basic essentials.

Every donation, regardless of size, contributes significantly to our collective impact. Together, through the power of unity and compassion, we can continue to build more resilient communities and transform our community for the better.

United, we succeed. Your continued support reaffirms our belief in the strength of our community to overcome challenges and create opportunities for all.

Please consider making your contribution before the year concludes and help us kickstart the new year with renewed hope and support for those who need it most.

Donate today and be part of something bigger—a community united for positive change.

Thank you for your unwavering dedication and support.
