United Way of Pettis County Initiatives: Mental Health and Substance Abuse, Childhood Development & Hunger
1. The United Way of Pettis County has a proud tradition of nearly 60 years of service to Pettis County. It was founded in order to provide the most cost-effective method of raising funds for the county's basic charitable organizations. Our United Way accomplished this goal 60 years ago, and it continues to do so today. 2. We are a member of United Way Worldwide. The role of the International association is to assist and serve local United Ways - not the other way around. Our local United Way is completely autonomous. We choose the agencies and initiatives that will be a part of the support we provide year round to include the annual campaign. United Way Board of Directors determines the grant allocation based on programming and impact to Pettis County. All decisions are made locally. 3. Dues paid to United Way Worldwide have been completely voluntary, and annually amount to just 1% of the amount pledged in the campaign. We pay these dues and in return we receive goods, services, and national publicity worth far more than the amount we pay. 4. The Board of Directors is the governing body of our local United Way. Each Director is elected by Pettis County citizens at an annual meeting. Our Board is a cross section of the community - teachers, lawyers, industry workers, government employees, large and small business owners, and retired people. They are the people who make the decisions regarding the operation of the Sedalia-Pettis County United Way. 5. Your local United Way is the original low budget operation. It is run by volunteers who generate funding for important programming in Pettis County, support initiative , make policy, set goals, and budget funds. The money you contribute to United Way is used to meet the needs of people in our community. 6. Our United Way has one full-time paid employee and one part-time paid employee. Together this 1.5 person team handles our accounting and correspondence, acts as liaison between our agencies and the public, and assists our volunteer Board and Campaign Cabinet. They also manage the UWPC web-site, Dolly Parton Imagination Library, coordinate UWPC workgroups and community meetings, raises dollars and keeps track of donations, and attends partner agency meetings. This team identifies collaborative options to work toward solutions to issues in Pettis County. 7. In order to be accepted as an agency of the United Way of Pettis County, organizations annually submit financial statements, summaries of programs and other information to United Way's Budget Committee. The Committee is comprised of members of the Board. When they are accepted as a United Way agency they are held strictly accountable for the funds they receive. They are required to submit quarterly reports with written documentation as to how the money they received was spent. The agencies are accountable to United Way and United Way is accountable to everyone who makes a donation. 8. Many local businesses offer their employees the option of payroll deduction. Please consider this option if it is available to you. A small amount from each paycheck adds up to a significant gift. And remember your gift will stay in our community to help those in need, and improve the quality of life for us all.
