United Way’s Mission
 
United Way of Perry County's mission is to improve the quality of life for the people we serve by providing leadership and mobilizing resources to create lasting change.
  • Identifying the needs of our community, our families, our children, our elderly and our disadvantaged
  • Creating initiatives with community partners to improve life in Perry County for all
  • Promoting the community's participation in volunteer efforts for non-profits
  • Encouraging the community's financial generosity
  • Advocating for those in need
  • Measuring and evaluating the results of our efforts 
  • Applauding the efforts and accomplishments of our community
United Way’s Targeted Community Priorities:
  • Education
  • Financial Stability
  • Health
These are the building blocks for a good quality of life because we know that a quality education leads to a stable job with enough income to support a family's good health.  
 
United Way’s Policy against Coercion
 
Fundraising should always be conducted in a voluntary manner; coercion creates animosity, hinders communication and understanding, and eventually leads to decreased support. We discourage the practice of seeking 100% participation in a campaign, as that may inadvertently encourage coercion.
 
To underscore our conviction about this policy, United Way Worldwide’s Board of Governors adopted the following policy statement:
The Board of Governors of United Way Worldwide believes that the most responsive contributors are those who have the opportunity to become informed and involved.  A well-planned campaign with an effective communications program, conducted by committed volunteers, will ensure responsible contributors.  While we have always been unalterably opposed to coercion, we do recognize a responsibility to state our beliefs formally, as freedom of choice is a basic tenet of our democratic society.  Giving is a personal matter and decision: no form of coercion is acceptable to United Way Worldwide.
