$2.2 Million Dollar Investment Decision Confirmed

On May 20, United Way of Asheville and Buncombe County’s Board of Directors approved its 2015-2016 Investment Strategy, the result of a competitive grant process in which $2.2 million will be invested in 82 high-quality local programs. Final reports from last year’s funded partners improved the lives of almost 63,000 people right here in Buncombe County. For some, this means gaining access to their first affordable home, for others it means support and training following a layoff.

Welcome to Laura Marx - President, United Way of NC

We were so pleased to have the opportunity to meet with Laura Marx, the new president of United Way of NC. New to North Carolina, but not United Way, Laura is taking time at the start of her tenure to conduct a listening tour, meeting with leadership at local United Ways. One of the great strengths Laura brings to this work is her experience running a statewide 2-1-1 system back in New Jersey. North Carolina is lucky to have her.
