Thank you for your interest in United Way! Even if your organization cannot do payroll deduction, your employees can still be involved in the United Way campaign by giving individual gifts. They can make a cash or check donation by visiting our office at 213 West Main Street in Tupelo, or they can mail a check to PO Box 334, Tupelo, MS 38802.
But even better, you can give with a credit or debit card on our website or right from your phone. This method is easy and secure and can be stopped or changed at any time by contacting United Way at 662-841-9133.
We would appreciate if you would please pass this information along to your employees so they have the option to give if they would like. On this page, there is a short video (3:30) that tells the United Way story and shows how to give online or via mobile. There is also a sample email that you can forward to your coworkers to tell them about the United Way campaign and why it’s a good thing for the community.

United Way of Northeast Mississippi has been serving our region for over 50 years. They raise funds for 64 health and human services organizations that are creating impact in the areas of Academic Success, Health & Wellness, and Family Stability. A full list of these partner agencies can be found on their website at https://www.unitedwaynems.org/partner-agencies/ Chances are, you or someone you know has been touched by one of these organizations, and United Way provides an easy way to support these needed programs in our communities.
In addition to funding nonprofit partners, United Way has taken a new focus on community-wide issues, namely food insecurity and grade-level reading. This short video discusses the issue of hunger, especially among children, from the perspective of a teacher and others who work with this issue everyday. But it also shows how United Way is making a difference with the support of people like us.
The video also shows how easy it is to give and be part of the solution.
I encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity to support our community by giving through United Way. I believe this is a worthy cause that we should be a part of. If you have any questions, please reach out to United Way at 662-841-9133 or email Mike Mitchell at firstname.lastname@example.org or Russ Wilson at email@example.com
