The Henry County United Fund works to enhance the quality of life for the people of Henry County through service, support and collaboration.
HCUF brings people together from many organizations -- civic, service and corporate -- to tackle the issues that matter most. By developing partnerships and collaborations with a variety of groups, we engage the best minds to achieve results that none of us can accomplish alone.
Each fall, we conduct a fundraising campaign by approaching people in their workplaces and individually. After the campaign concludes December 31, money that has been pledged and/or donated is allocated to nonprofit agencies serving Henry County citizens.
Who to Help? How Much? The Community Decides.
A volunteer Allocations Committee visits each agency requesting funding. They review extensive documentation the agencies have submitted in an application, including financial statements, tax-exempt status and the agency's purpose -- the target population, services and goals. Following site visits and application reviews, the committee proposes funding for the approaching April 1-March 31 cycle. The United Fund Board then votes to approve the allocations.
Accountability and Transparency
Agencies and programs receiving United Fund monies are held accountable for their activities in the expenditure of these funds. Depending on the level of funding given, United fund requires each entity to report on either a quarterly, semi-annual, or annual basis. These reports account for use of our donors' dollars and ensure the transparent use of resources for the intended purpose.
United Fund has served the Henry County community for 75 years!
75 years. A nice, round number, something to celebrate, maybe even an attention-grabber. But let's be honest, we're here for bigger purposes, right? So what does 75 years REALLY mean to you?
It means we're reliable.
We are responsible and accountable.
We're not going anywhere -- and neither are your donations! When you give to United Fund, all of your money stays right here, to help your neighbors. And that means a better future for all.
