Education is the cornerstone for success in school, work, and life.  More importantly, it benefits the whole community:  high school graduates earn more and contribute to their local economies, are more engaged in their communities, and are more likely to raise kids who also graduate.  United Way is about more than short-term charity for a few; we are about lasting solutions that build opportunity for all.  We look at the big picture, identifying what resources are lacking, or need strengthening, and how we can address those gaps to keep kids on track to graduation.
