DISTRIBUTE YOUR INVESTMENT
I want my investment to have the GREATEST IMPACT in our community.
Investor's Choice - 2020-21 United Way Agencies
I want a portion of my investment to be directed to the following program(s) and/or service(s).
Investor's Choice - Baptist Memorial Health Care Foundation
Investor's Choice - Specific Program, Service, or Community
I authorize my Personal Time Off (PTO) hours to be deducted from my current available balance. The cash value (number of hours x hourly rate of pay minus taxes) of my donation is to be donated to the Baptist Memorial Health Care Foundation as I have designated. I am aware that the PTO donation will be deducted as a payroll deduction, and I must retain 40 hours of PTO to make the donation valid.
I understand that I have donated these PTO hours to the Baptist Memorial Health Care Foundation and that they are no longer available for my personal use.
Please contact Melissa Lewis at (901)227-7241 or firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
I authorize my employer to deduct the necessary amount(s) from each paycheck. I understand this authorization will continue unless otherwise specified by me in writing. If applicable, I authorize United Way of the Mid-South to make a charge to my credit card, next to my name as indicated above for the amount stated. I understand that if I DO NOT wish to remain anonymous, my name will be visible and all other contact information will be kept confidential. United Way of the Mid-South does not provide goods or services as a whole or partial consideration for any contribution.
Unless you choose to designate your gift to a particular focus area, county, or other agency, your funds will be invested in the Community Impact Fund in the county of your employment. Many local volunteers in your community work with United Way staff to determine the most effective way to deploy these resources
UNITED WAY’s RECOMMENDED CHOICE:
1. The Community Impact Fund, the way your investment has the highest impact for our community and supports United Way in Driving The Dream to help more people escape generational poverty:
EDUCATION • Kindergarten readiness • Third Grade reading success • College/career readiness • Adult education & literacy
FINANCIAL STABILITY • Attaining family-sustaining employment and stronger financial stability • Empowering individuals with financial tools, education, and services to reduce poverty
HEALTH • Healthy eating and active living • Prevention of domestic violence and child abuse • Support services for people with special needs • Senior citizen health & wellness
ESSENTIAL SERVICES • Emergency services for family
2. You may also support a specific United Way of the Mid-South Agency, or another United Way in a different city and state. A list of partner agencies can be found on our website: https://www.uwmidsouth.org/get-involved/agencies/.
3. Another option is to support a specific non-United Way 501(c)(3) agency in the United Way of the Mid-South’s service area. Please review the following Guidelines for Donation on this page for additional information.
GUIDELINES FOR DONATION
United Way of the Mid-South’s mission is to improve the quality of life for Mid-Southerners through mobilizing and aligning resources to address priority issues. Therefore, we recommend that non-United Way Agency donations be made to organizations that address education, financial stability, health, or other essential human service needs within our 8-county service areas.
When designating to a NON-UNITED WAY AGENCY, the agency must meet the following criteria to be qualified to accept a United Way designation:
PLEASE NOTE: United Way of the Mid-South does not monitor the use of funds or the effectiveness of the services provided by non-United Way agencies. United Way recommends the Community Impact Fund so we can ensure your gift is used to fund effective services with a proven record of impact. Please know that if your place of employment uses a “Third Party Processor” (TPP) to receive your pledge and disburse your donation, United Way may not be told a) your contact information, b) the total amount of your pledge or c) the amount you designate to any entity besides our United Way Community Impact Fund. Therefore, we may not be able to reliably acknowledge your donation, nor fully follow up with you for graciously contributing through our campaign. We do thank you! We also note that while United Way does not charge any fee for processing your donation, your company may allow the TPP to do so, for the value and efficiency the TPP provides.
