United Way Announces RFP for Parent Leadership Program at Asheville Middle

In partnership with Asheville Middle School (AMS), United Way of Asheville and Buncombe County (UWABC) seeks a local community organization to coordinate a Parent Leadership Program at Asheville Middle School. The program will be piloted in the spring of 2017 with plans to continue long-term.

What is a Parent Leadership Program?

IMPACT. What volunteers did in two days, changed people's lives forever

As one of the newest staff members here at United Way of Asheville and Buncombe County, I was told about Days of Impact when I first came on board and had been looking forward to the two-day volunteer event ever since. In the weeks proceeding, I was told that I would get a chance to see what this community was all about and I have to admit, I wasn’t disappointed. 

Tax Deduction Legislation

United Way Worldwide (UWW) and United Way of North Carolina continue to advocate to protect the charitable deduction. In the federal tax reform framework released a few weeks ago, the charitable deduction was preserved but it was retained as an itemized deduction. This would have a significant impact on charitable giving due to the proposed increase in the standard deduction. It is expected that 28 million people would lose their tax incentive to give, potentially resulting in $13.1 billion less in giving each year.
