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 full-time employee whose salary is funded by a grant from the RAM Foundation
  • All funds raised in our Annual Fall 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
