How would you prioritize where investments are made in our community?
The challenges facing our community are complex, vast, and interconnected. The pandemic lingers on, the cost of living continues to rise, and too many Mainers are struggling with their mental health. But the good news is these issues are not too complex to solve when we align our collective efforts behind a shared vision.
When there are many partners holding a piece of the solution, you need someone at the center with an eye on how the pieces fit together. That’s the role United Way of Southern Maine plays in our community. We mobilize our community around Thrive2027 – our collective vision and a set of three goals to ensure kids have a strong start; empower neighbors to thrive – not just survive; and help us all live longer, better.
A key to our success has always been community engagement. And we’d like your input today. If you were a community investment volunteer deciding how United Way invests donated funds, how would you prioritize where investments are made in our community? Share your voice below.
