About Community Impact

OUR MISSION
United Way of Rutland County partners to create stronger and healthier communities.

For over 75 years UWRC has supported our community by:
• raising awareness of community needs;
• engaging donors during our annual campaign;
• bringing people together;
• and supporting our partner agencies.

In Community Impact Funding:

• What does not change is how hard we work to raise funds and ensure they are
distributed wisely and used well.

• What must change is our skill at measuring program outcomes and reporting
our successes. By being accountable to our stakeholders, we will ensure continued
support. And by having a story to tell, we will attract new funding to enable us to
help our community towards a brighter future.
