United Way Worldwide is the trade association for over 1,285 local United Ways. From the United Way Dixie’s annual campaign, one percent of the campaign is paid in dues to United Way Worldwide. In return, United Way Dixie receives: NFL advertisements, national public policy and lobbying support, research, volunteer/staff training, and fundraising assistance with large, national companies. United Way Dixie is run by a local, volunteer Board of Directors, who set policy and ensure proper fiscal accountability. Locally, we’re very proud of the care we take to invest every donation wisely, and to continually monitor the impact of funded programs
