1926 Society

Early in 1926, Miss Elizabeth Fonde, Mrs. Lelia Hall, and Mrs. Corinne Wilson expressed to the President of the Mobile Chamber of Commerce, Mr. J.L. Bedsole, their concern regarding the need for a community-wide fundraising campaign. Mr. Bedsole suggested the formation of a Community Chest in October of 1926 and was appointed Chairman of the  Community Chest of Mobile County. Over the years, the original Community Chest evolved into United Way of Southwest Alabama.

Membership in the 1926 Society is reserved for our most generous benefactors and complements other recognition societies to which a donor may belong. Once a donor has given a cumulative total of $25,000 to United  Way of Southwest Alabama, they will be recognized with lifetime membership. The society was named for the year United Way of Southwest  Alabama was founded, and the giving circles are named in honor of the four pioneers who brought about its creation.
