It's Sponsorship Time!

United Way of Blount County is again offering "one-stop shopping" for all of our United Way Sponsorships in 2014 to prevent multiple requests from United Way. Check out the 2014 Sponsorships Brochure and choose the event sponsorship(s) that will best reach your target audience.  From the Golf Tournament to the Public Service Luncheon, there is an event that is just right for your company/organization.

Special events raised approximately $90,000 last year for United Way of Blount County and are an integral part of United Way's success. 

This year marks our 60th anniversary, and we could not be prouder to have served this community since 1954. As you review the brochure, please note that we will celebrate this milestone with our 60th Anniversary Gala to be held Thursday, September 25, 2014.  This is just one of many ways we will be recognizing this important anniversary and look forward to your being a part of our celebrations.

Sometimes it's the little things that matter the most. A warm bed, a meal at the end of the day, a ride to life-saving medical care; all things that many may take for granted, yet can be monumental to those without. With the combined efforts of volunteers and the generosity of the local community, these "little things" can certainly have a big impact.

United Way of Blount County is advancing the common good by creating opportunities for a better life for all. Our goal is to create lasting changes in our community by addressing the root causes of Blount County's problems.

Together, we can accomplish more than any single group can on its own.

That's what it means to LIVE UNITED.

Check out our 2013 Campaign Video to see how "little things" are making big impacts in Blount County.
