Your business is stronger and can accomplish greater things when our community is strong and people thrive.

A united and resilient community where everyone belongs and everyone thrives.

This is the vision that propels us in our work at United Way and we can do more with you by our side as a sponsor and partner. Whether you see your sponsorship decisions as an extension of your organization’s core values or a smart advertising opportunity, a sponsorship with United Way of Asheville and Buncombe County can help your business in the following ways:

  • Increased visibility of your business in the community. We work hard to ensure that your business is celebrated for the contributions you make as sponsors and volunteers
  • Increased brand recognition and trust. With 100 years of experience, United Way has a strong reputation and track record locally and we benefit from a strong, internationally recognized, and trusted brand as well
  • We invite you to join these great sponsors in making positive and long-lasting change in our communities
