Welcome!

2013-14 Fundraising Campaign

The United Way of Clatsop County is nearing the end of its annual campaign to raise raise money for the dozen essential community organizations it serves. And US Bank’s generous annual contribution has pushed us to over 76% of our $275,000.00 goal.

United Way of Clatsop County

Not for ourselves, but for our friends and neighbors in crisis.

People who have been self-reliant are suddenly finding themselves needing help to pay for heat and rent. Unemployment, hunger and homelessness are on the rise.

United Way’s Annual Campaign helps fund a strong network of social services to aid people in need. Our network of agencies is reporting record-breaking demand, so your help is needed now more than ever. The economic plight affecting so many hard-working families may not always be visible, but the impact is all too real in our schools and among our service providers.

If you are able to respond in any way, your help will make a critical difference. If you’ve already made a gift to United Way this year, please consider an additional one-time emergency gift. If you haven’t donated to United Way, please do so now. It may be the most important gift you give this season.

Please help us meet our 2013 campaign goal of $275,000.  We greatly appreciate your support.
