How to Get Involved

It takes money to solve Dawson County's most critical issues.  But, it also takes focus, creativeness and willing hearts and hads to get results. 

It takes you and thousands like you who donate valuable time, talent and treasure to build a stronger and safer community.

To get results, United Way brings people and resources together to address the issues you care about most.

Ready to help?  Here's how YOU can Live United!

Want to make a cash donation?  Your dollars are welcome year round, and are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.  Please use our online pledge card by clicking here or you can request a donation form any time by emailing Lindsay Bohannon or calling the United Way office at 770.781.4110.

  • Volunteer

Volunteering is a great way to get involved and see immediate results for your efforts.  Think about how you LIVE UNITED and be selective about where you spend your time.  Choosing opportunities that make you feel good while helping others builds stronger communities and enriches your own life at the same time.
