Ways to Give

Everyone has something to give. Every act of generosity counts.

Together, we build bridges to better futures for local children. This year, our donors enable us to help nearly 40,000 more local parents and children through direct services to support kindergarten readiness and middle school student success, and through 17 grants with local nonprofits that increase services in our community’s areas of greatest need. You can help create better futures through the donation opportunities below.



A gift to United Way of Benton & Franklin Counties remains the most effective and efficient way to help the entire community. When you make a donation, your dollars stay in our community to help with needs as varied as the people with those needs. Your generosity makes our region a better place for all of us. Thank you.

How to: You can donate immediately through our online page, or fill out a pledge form and send it to us. 



Increase your gift to United Way while gaining additional tax benefits.

How to: Simply transfer the stock directly to United Way rather than selling it, which allows you to claim a charitable contribution in the amount of the average of the high and the low stock price on the day of the transfer.

Get started: Contact Carol Brandner at cbrandner@uwbfco.org or 509-581-3941.



Grow your legacy while providing sustainable, long-term support for your community.

How to: A planned gift can be given in many ways, including cash, charitable trusts, life insurance, retirement plans, bequests, appreciated property, charitable gift annuities, and donor-advised funds.

Get started: Contact United Way's Resource Development Team: pklein@uwbfco.org



Hundreds of employers in our community make giving to United Way easy through automatic payroll deductions. Ask your employer if a United Way campaign is coming to your workplace. If you’d like information about how to provide the benefit of safe, convenient contributions to your employees, contact: pklein@uwbfco.org
