As stewards of our community's investment in United Way of Lamar County, we strive to be responsible and transparent in our use of funds.
- Administration, Operating and Fundraising Expenses are kept as low as possible. We only have one employee whose salary is funded by a grant from the RAM Foundation
- $500,000 of the funds raised in 2019 Campaign are being directly invested in health and human service programs that meet identified needs through partnerships with local agencies.
- Less than 1% goes to United Way Worldwide and that comes back to us through training, marketing and branding
