2021 Wake United Way Campaign kicks off today

This message is shared on behalf of the 2021 Wake United Campaign Cabinet. This year’s Wake United Campaign launches on Sept. 28 and runs through Oct. 31.

Dear Wake Forest Colleagues,

As we have collectively faced the challenges of the last year and a half, our committee is encouraged by the enduring spirit of Pro Humanitate. Through acts of service, advocacy and philanthropy, we have seen our community respond intentionally and generously to the current moment.

Notably, our Wake Forest community raised over $268,000 during the 2020-2021 annual United Way of Forsyth County (UWFC) campaign. Because of your support, UWFC was able to serve over 140,000 people right here in our community.

UWFC brings the community and its resources together to solve problems no one organization can address alone. This mission, along with the commitment to create a thriving community by investing in neighborhoods and households, helps our community to build a better tomorrow together.

Every dollar raised goes directly towards this mission. Every contribution makes a difference. We know that you give back to our community in many ways and hope that you will include a donation to the United Way this year.

Our 2021-2022 Wake United campaign runs from September 28 through October 31. Over the next month, you can expect to receive four emails from our committee talking further about this important cause.

To learn more about this year’s initiative, watch this video from the Forsyth County Campaign Chair.

Please join us and make your pledge today!
