SMALL BUSINESS. BIG IMPACT.

For as little as $1 a day, your business can improve the odds for local children and families, starting with early education.

United Way of Northeast Mississippi has created an easy and affordable way for small businesses to make a lasting impact. Being a member aligns your business with United Way and our 50+ year history of bringing people together around the issues that matter most.

We all benefit when children succeed in school, families are stable and secure, and our community has access to the resources needed for healthy lives. And your business benefits from a better prepared workforce and a stronger economy.

Did you know that 87% of consumers are willing to buy a product or service from a company because that company supports a cause that is important to them?
